God spake all these words, saving, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought 
thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 

I. — Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. 

II. — Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any 
thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the 
water under the earth : thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them : 
for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon 
the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me ; and 
showing mercy unto thousands of them that love Me, and keep My command- 

III. — Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the 
Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His Name in vain. 

IV. --Remember the Sabbath-day to keep it holy. Six clays shalt thou labor, 
and do all thy work : but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God; in 
it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy man-servant, 
nor thy maid-sen-ant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates ; for 
in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and 
rested, the seventh day; wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath-day, and hal- 
lowed it. 

V. — Honor- thy father and thy mother : that thy days may be long upon the 
land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. 

VI.— Thou shalt not kill. 

VII. — Thou shalt not commit adultery. 

VIII. — Thou shalt not steal. 

IX. — Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. 

X. — Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neigh- 
bor's wife, nor his man-servant, nor his maid-servant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor 
any thing that is thy neighbor's. 


Imthew 22 : 37 

- 40- 

Thou shalt love 

the Lord thy God with all 

th V 

heart, and 

with all thy soul, and 

with all thy mind. 

This is the first and great 


And the second is 

like unto it. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as 


self. On 

these two command 

ments hang all the law and the prophets. 


The Lord's Prayer. 

1 Our Father, who art in heaven, | hallowed | be thy | name ; 

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on | earth, ■ • as it | is in | heaven. 

2 Give us this | day our | daily | bread ; 

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive | them that | tres-- -pass a- | gainst us. 

3 And lead us not into temptation, but dc- | liver | us from | evil ; 

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for- | ever. | A | men. 

The Apostles' Creed. 

I believe in God the Father Almighty, | 
Maker of | heaven and | earth : 

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord ; 
who was conceived by the HolY Ghost, 
| born of the | Virgin Mary, 

Suffered under Pontius- Pilate, was | cruci- 
fied, | dead, and | buried; 

He descended into hell ; the third | day 
he | rose from the | dead ; 

He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the 

right hand of | God the | Father Al- 1 
mighty ; 

From thence he shall come to | judge the | 
quick and the j dead. 

I believe in the Holy Ghost ; the | holy 
| catholic | Church, 

The communion of saints ; the for- | give- 
ness of | sins ; 

The — | resur- | rection of the | body, and 
the life | ever- | lasting. A- | men.

Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see, 
Only Thou art Holy ; there is none beside Thee 
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

COME, let us sing unto the Lord, 

Let us heartily rejoice in the strength of our salvation. 
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, 
And show ourselves glad in him with psalms. 

For the Lord is a great God, 

And a great King above all gods. 
In his hand are all the corners of the earth; 

And the strength of the hills is his also. 

The sea is his, and he made it; 

And his hands prepar'd the dry land. 
come, let us worship, and fall down; 

And kneel before the Lord our Maker. 

For he is the Lord our God; 
And we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. 

worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness; 
Let the whole earth stand in awe of him. 

For he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth; 
And with righteousness to judge the world, and the people with 

his truth. 
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, 

And to the Holy Ghost; 
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, 
World without end. Amen.

Psalm I. 

"DLESSED is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungo< 
A ^r standeth in the way of sinners, 

r or sitteth in the seat of the scornful, 

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord ; 

And in his law cloth he meditate day and night. 

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, 

That br in geth forth his fruit in his season ; 
His leaf also shall not wither ; 

And whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. 

4 The ungodly are not so : 

But are like the chaff ichich the wind driveth away. 
I Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, 

JWor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous : 

But tJie way of the ungodly shall perish. 


Psalm II. 

HY do the heathen rage, 

And the people imagine a vain thing ? 
The kings of the earth set themselves, 
j And the rulers take counsel together, 
I Against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying^ 
Let us break their bands asunder, 

And cast away their cords from us. 
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh : 

The Lord shall have them in derision. 


5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, 

And vex them in his sore displeasure. 

6 Yet have I set my king 

Upon my holy hill of Zion. 

7 \ I will declare the decree : 

I The Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my son ; 
TJiis day have I begotten thee. 

8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, 

And the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. 

9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron ; 

Thou shalt dash them in pieces like a pottbr's vessel. 

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings : 

Be instructed, ye judges of the earth. 

11 Serve the Lord with fear, 

And rejoice with trembling. 

12 ( Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, 
( When his wrath is kindled but a little. 

Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. 

Psalm III. 

LORD, how are they increased that trouble me ! 
Many are they that rise up against me. 
2 Many there be which say of my soul, 

Titer e is no help for him in God. 
o But thou, O Lord, art a shield for me; 

My glory, and the lifter up of mine head. 

4 1 cried unto the Lord with my voice, 

And he heard me out of his holy hill. 

5 I laid me down and slept ; 

laicaked ; for the Lord sustained me. 
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, 

TJxat have set themselves against me round about. 

7 j Arise, O Lord ; save me, O my God : 

( For thou hast smitten all mine enemies upon the cheek bone ; 
Thou hast broken the teeth of the ungodly. 

8 Salvation belongeth unto the Lord ; 

Thy blessing is upon thy people. 



Psalm IV. 

{ TTEAR me when I call, O God of my righteousness : 
( -"--"- Thou hast enlarged me when I was in distress ; 
Have mercy upon me and hear my prayer. 

2 O ye sons of men, how long will ye turn my glory into shame? 

How long will ye love vanity, and seek after leasing f 

3 But know that the Lord hath set apart him that is godly for himself: 

T/ie Lord will hear when 1 call unto him. 

4 Stand in awe, and sin not : 

Commune with your oton heart upon your bed, and be still. 

5 Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, 

And put your trust in the Lord. 
There may be many that say, Who will shew us any good ? 

Lord, lift thou up the light of thy countenance upon us. 
V Thou hast put gladness in my heart, 

More than in the time that their com and their wine increased 
8 1 will both lay me down in peace and sleep : 

For thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety. 

Psalm V. 

C\ IVE ear to my words, O Lord ; 
^ Consider my meditation. 

2 Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King and my God: 

For unto thee will I pray. 

3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord ; 

In the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. 

4 For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: 

Neither shall evil dwell with thee. 

5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight : 

Thou hatest all loorkers of iniquity. 

6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: 

The Lord will abhor the bloody and deceitful man. 

7 But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy 

And in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple. 



Load mo, O Lord, in thy righteousness, because of mine enemies ; 
Make thy way straight before my face. 
9 For there is no faithfulness in their mouth ; their inward partis very wickedness 
Their throat is an open sepulchre ; they flatter with their tongue. 

10 Destroy thou them, O God ; let them fall by their own counsels; 

Cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions / for they have 
rebelled against thee. 

1 1 ( But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice : 

( Let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them : 
Let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. 

12 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous ; 

With favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield. 


Psalm VIII. 
LORD our Lord, 

How excellent is thy name in all the earth ! 

Who hast set thy glory above the heavens. 
2 ( Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength, 
1 Because of thine enemies, 

That thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. 
5 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, 

The moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained / 

4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him ? 

And the son of man, that thou visitest him ? 

5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, 

And hast crowned him xoith glory and honour. 
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands ; 
TIiou hast put all things under his feet : 

7 All sheep and oxen, 

Yea, and the beasts of the field ; 

8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, 

And whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. 
O Lord, our Lord, 

How excellent is thy name in all the earth I 


Psalm IX. 

WILL praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart ; 
I ic ill shew forth all thy marvellous works. 

LESSON 3. \ 

2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee : 

I will sing praise to thy name, thou Most nigh. 

3 When mine enemies are turned back, 

TJiey shall fall and perish at thy presence, 
i For thou hast maintained my right and my cause ; 
Tlxou safest in the throne judging right. 

5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, 

Thou Itastput out their name for ever and ever. 

6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end : 

And thou hast destroyed cities ; their memorial is perished with them. 

7 But the Lord shall endure for ever ; 

He hath prepared his throne for judgment. 

8 And he shall judge the world in righteousness, 

He shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness. 

9 The Loud also will be a refuge for the oppressed, 

A refuge in times of trouble. 

10 And they that know thy name will pat their trust in thee : 

For thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee. 

1 1 Sing praises to the Lord, which dwelleth in Zion : 

Declare among the people his doings.

that hate me, 

Thou that I if test me up from the gates of death : 
] 1 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion : 

Twill rejoice in thy salvation. 
15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made : 

la the net which they hid is their own foot taken. 
10 The Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth : 

The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. 

17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, 

And all the nations that forget God. 

18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten: 

The expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. 

19 Arise, O Lord ; let not man prevail : 

Let the heathen be judged in thy sight. 

20 Put them in fear, O Lord : 

That the nations may know themselves to be but men.

or doeth evil to his neighbour, 
Nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour. 

4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned ;

Nor taketh reward against the innocent. 

lie that doeth these things shall never be moved. 

Psalm XVI. 

pPtESERVE me, O God : 

-L For in thee do I put my trust. 

2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou irt my Lord : 

My goodness extendeth not to thee ; 

3 But to the saints that are in the earth, 
And to the excellent, in whom is all my delight. 

Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god 
Their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, 
Nor take up their names into my lips. 
5 The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup : 

Thou maintainest my lot. 
The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places ; 
Yea, I have a goodly heritage. 

7 I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel : 

My reins also instruct me in the night seasons. 

8 I have set the Lord always before me : 

Because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 

9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth ; 

My flesh also shall rest in hope.

Neither icilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption

Psalm XVII. 

HEAR the right, O Lord, attend unto my cry ; 
Give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned lips. 

2 Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; 

Let thine eyes behold the things that are equal. 

3 j Thou hast proved mine heart; thou hast visited me in the night; 
( Thou hast tried me, and shalt find nothing: 

I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. 

4 Concerning the works of men, 

By the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer. 

5 Hold up my goings in thy paths, 

That my footsteps slip not. 

6 I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God : 

Incline thine ear unto me and hear my speech. 

7 Shew thy marvellous loving kindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand 

them which put their trust in thee, 
From those that rise up against them. 

8 Keep me as the apple of the eye ; 

Hide me under the shadow of thy icings, 

9 From the wicked that oppress me, 

From my deadly enemies, who compass me about. 

10 They are enclosed in their own fat : 

With their mouth they speak proudly. 

11 They have now compassed us in our steps: 

They have set their eyes bowing down to the earth / 

12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, 

And as it were a young lion lurking in secret places. 

13 Arise, O Lord, disappoint him, cast him down ; 

Deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword: 

14 i From men which are thy hand, O Lord, from men of the world, 

j Which have their portion in this life, and whose belly thou fillest with the) 
' hid treasure : 

Tltey are full of children, and leave the rest of their substa?ice to their babes.

Psalm XVIII. 1-35.

My God, my strength, in whom I will trust ; 

31 y buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower, 

3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised : 

JSo shall I be saved from mine enemies. 

4 The sorrows of death compassed me, 

And the floods of ungodly men made me afraid. 

5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: 

The snares of death prevented me. 

6 In my distress I called upon the Lord, 

And cried unto my God: 
He heard my voice out of his temple, 

And my cry came before him, even into his ears. 

7 Then the earth shook and trembled ; 

j The foundations also of the hills moved 
( And were shaken, because he was wroth. 
There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, 
And fire out of his mouth devoured : 
Coals were kindled by it. 
9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: 
And darkness teas under his feet. 

10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly : 

Yea, he did fly upon the icings of the wind. 

1 1 He made darkness his secret place ; 

His pavilion round about him were dark water s,and thick clouds of the skies 

12 At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, 

Hail stones and coals of fire. 

13 j The Lord also thundered in the heavens, 
( And the Highest gave his voice ; 

Hail stones and coeds of fire. 

14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; 

And he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. 

15 Then the channels of waters were seen, 

And the foundations of the world were discovered, 
At thy rebuke, O Lord, 

At the blast of the breath of thy nostrils 


LESSON 6. 11 

16 He seut from above, he took me, 

He drew me out of many waters. 

17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, 

A nd front them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. 
IS They prevented me in the day of my calamity: 
But the Lord was my stay. 

19 He brought me forth also into a large place ; 

He delivered me, because he delighted in me. 

20 The Lord rewarded me according to my righteousness: 

According to the cleamiess of my hands hath he recompensed me. 

21 For I have kept the ways of the Lord, 

And have not wickedly departed from my God. 

22 For all his judgments were before me, 

A)id I did not 2m t away his statutes from me. 

23 I was also upright before him, 

And Theft myself from mine iniquity. 

24 Therefore hath the Lord recompensed me according to my righteousness, 

According to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight. 

25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; 

With an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright ; 
2G With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; 

And with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward. 
27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people; 

But icllt bring down high looks. 
23 For thou wilt light my candle ; 

Tlxc Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. 

29 For by thee I have run through a troop; 

And by my God have Ilecqied over a wall. 

30 j As for God, his way is perfect : 
( The word of the Lord is tried : 

He is a buckler to all those that trust in hinu 

31 For who is God save the Lord ? 

Or who is a rock save our God f 

32 It is God that girdeth me with strength, 

And maketh my way p>zrfect. 

33 He maketh my feet like hind's feet, 

And setteth me up>on my high places. 

34 He teacheth my hands to war, 

So that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. 

35 ( Thou hast also given me the Bhield of thy salvation: 
( And thy right hand hath holden me up, 

And. thy gentleness hath made ?>" great. 



Psalm XIX. 

rpHE heavens declare the glory of God ;

2 Day unto day uttereth speech, 

And night itnto night sheweth knowledge. 

3 There is no speech nor language, 

Where their voice is not heard. 

4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, 

And their words to the end of the world. 

5 j In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 

( Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, 
And rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. 

6 j His going forth is from the end of the heaven,

And there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. 

8 The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart : 

The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes, 

9 The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: 

The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. 

10 More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold : 

Sweeter also than honey, and the honeycomb. 

1 1 Moreover by them is thy servant warned : and in keeping of them there is 

great reward. 

12 Who can understand his errors ? cleanse thou me from secret faults. 

13 Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins ; let them not have do- 

minion over me : 
Then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. 

14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable 

in thy sight, 
Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.

2 Praise the Lord with harp : 

Sing unto him with the psaltery, and an instrument of ten strings.

Play skilfully with a loud noise. 

4 For the word of the Lord is right ; 

And all his works are done in truth. 

5 He loveth righteousness and judgment : 

The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. 

6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made ; 

And all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 
*J He gathereth the waters of the sea together as a heap : 
He layeth up the depth in storehouses. 

8 Let all the earth fear the Lord : 

Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 

9 For he spake and it was done ; 

He commanded, and it stood fast.

Psalm XXXVI. 

rpHE transgression of the wicked saith within my heart, 
-*- That there is no fear of God before his eyes.

2 The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: 
He hath left off to be wise, and to do good. 

4 He deviseth mischief upon his bed . 

He setteth himself in a way that is not good / he abhorreth not evil. 

5 Thy mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens ; 

And thy faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds. 
4 j Thy righteousness is like the great mountains : 
( Thy judgments are a great deep : 

Lord, thou preservest man and beast. 

7 How excellent is thy loving kindness, O God! 

Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings, 

8 They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy hcuse; 

And thou shall make them drink of the river of thy pleasures. 

9 For with thee is the fountain of life : 

In thy light shall we see light.

Nor condemn him when he is judged. 

34 j Wait on the Lord and keep his way,

88 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not : 

Yea, I sought him, but he coidd not be found. 
87 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright:

Which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me. 

10 But thou, O Lord, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, 

That I may requite them.

7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts : 

All thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. 

8 Yet the Lord will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, 

And in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God 
of my life. 

9 I will say unto God, my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me ? 

Why go 1 mourning because of the oppression of the enemy f

Psalm LI. 

AVE mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: 

According unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgrcs- 
Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, [sions. 

And cleanse me from my sin. 
For I acknowledge my transgressions : 

And my sin is ever before me. 
Against thee, thee only, have I sinned. 
And done this evil in thy sight : 



That thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, 

And be clear when thou judgest. 

5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity ; 

And in sin did my mother conceive me. 

6 Behold thou desirest truth in the inward parts: 

And in the hidden part thou shalt make me to Jcnow wisdom. 

7 Purge mo with hyssop, and I shall be clean : 

Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 

8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; 

That the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice. 

9 Hide thy face from my sins, 

And blot out all mine iniquities. 

10 Create in me a clean heart, O God ; 

And renew a right spirit within me. 

11 Cast me not away from thy presence ; 

And take not thy Holy Spirit from me. 

12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation ; 

And uphold me with thy free Spirit. 

13 Then will I teach transgressors thy w r ays ; 

And sinners shall be converted unto thee. 

14 Deliver me from blood guiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation ; 

And my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness. 

15 O Lord, open thou my lips ; 

And my mouth shall sheio forth thy praise. 

16 For thou desirest not sacrifice ; else would I give it : 

Thou delightest not in burnt offering. 

1 7 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit : 

A broken and a contrite heart, God, thou wilt not despise. 

18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion : 

Build thou the walls of Jerusalem. 

19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt 

offering and whole burnt offering. ■* 

Then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

*-" And hide not thyself from my supplication. 

2 Attend unto me and hear me : 

1 mourn in my complaint, and make a noise ; 

3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked : 

For they east iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me. 

4 My heart is sore pained within me: 

And the terrors of death are fallen upon me. 

5 Fearfulness rind trembling are come upon me, 

And horror hath overwhelmed me. 

6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove ! 

For then would I fly away, and be at rest. 

7 Lo, then would I wander far off, 

And remain in the wilderness. 

8 I would hasten my escape, 

From the windy storm and tempest. 

9 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues : 

For I have seen violence and strife in the city. 

10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: 

Mischief also, and sorrow are in the midst of it. 

11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof: 

Deceit and guile depart not from her streets. 

12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me ; then could 1 have borne it : 

j Neither was it he that hated rm thai did magnify himself against me ; 
( Then I would have hid myself from him: 


13 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance. 

14 ( We took sweet counsel together, 

\ And icalked unto the house of God in company. 

15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: 

For wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them. 

1 6 As for me, I will call upon God ; 

And the Lord shall save me. 
11 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud : 
And he shall hear my voice. 

18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: 

For there were many with me. 

19 God shall hear, and afflict them, 

Even he that abideth of old. 
Because they have no changes, 
Therefore they fear not God. 

20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: 

He hath broken his covenant. 

21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart 

His loords icere softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords. 

22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee : 

He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. 

23 But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: 

^Bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days ; 


Psalm LXI.

Attend unto my prayer. 

2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed 

Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. 

3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, 

And a strong tower from the enemy. 

4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever : 

I will trust in the covert of thy icings. 

5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: 

Thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name, 

6 Thou wilt prolong the king's life :

8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him ■ 

God is a refuge for us. 

9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie : 

To be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity, 

10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: 

If riches increase, set not your heart upon them,

That power belongeth unto God. 

12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: 

For thou renderest to every man according to his work.

3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life,

4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: 

I will lift up my hands in thy name. 

5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness ; 

And my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lip>s: 

6 When I remember thee upon my bed, 

And meditate on thee in the night watches, 

7 Because thou hast been my help, 

Therefore in the shadow of thy xoings will I rejoice, 

8 My soul followeth hard after thee : 

Thy right hand upholdeth me. 
But those that seek my soul to destroy it, 
Shall go into the lower parts of the earth. 

10 They shall fall by the sword : 

They shall be a portion for foxes. 

1 1 But the king shall rejoice in God ; every one that sweareth by him shall glory 

But the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped. 


Psalm LXIV. 

TTEAR my voice, O God, in my prayer : 

•*--*- Preserve my life from fear of the enemy. 

2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked ; 

From the insurrection of the workers of iniquity : 

3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, 

And bend their botes to shoot their arrows, even bitter words: 

4 That they may shoot in secret at the perfect : 

Suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not. 
5 i They encourage themselves in an evil matter; 
( They commune of laying snares privily ;

7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; 

Suddenly shall they be wounded. 

8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves

Psalm LXXX. 

/"1IVE ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; 
^ Thou that dwellest between the cherubim, shine forth. 

2 Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, 

And come and save us. 

3 Turn us again, O God, 

And cause thy face to shine ; and we shall be saved. 

4 O Lord God of hosts, 

How long wilt thou be angry against the prayer of thy people? 

5 Thou feedest them with the bread of tears ; 

And givest them tears to drink in great measure. 

6 Thou makest us a strife unto our neighbours : 

And our enemies laugh among themselves. 

7 Turn us ngain, O God of hosts, 

And cause thy face to shine ; and ice shall be saved. 

8 Thou hast brought a vine out of Egypt : 

Thou hast cast out the heathen and planted it. 

9 Thou preparedst room before it, 

And didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land. 

10 The hills were covered with the shadow of it, 

And the boughs thereof were like live yoodly cedars. 

11 She sent out her boughs unto the sea, 

And her branches unto the river. 


12 Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, 

jSo that all they which pass by the icay do pluck her ? 

13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, 

And the wild beast of the field doth devour it. 
1 4 Return, we beseech thee, O God of hosts : 

Look dozen from heaven, and behold, and visit this vine : 
15 And the vineyard which thy right hand hath planted, 

And the branch that thou inadest strong for thyself. 
10 It is burned with fire, it is cut down : 

They perish at the rebuke of thy countenance. 

1 7 Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand, 

Upon the son of man whom thou madest strong for thyself. 

18 So will not we go back from thee : 

Quicken us, and we loill call upon thy name. 

19 Turn us again, O Lord God of hosts, 

Cause thy face to shine ; and toe shall be saved.

2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, 

The pleasant harp with the psaltery. 

3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, 

In the time appointed, on our solemn feast day. 

4 For this was a statute for Israel, 

And a law of the God of Jacob. 

5 ( This he ordained in Joseph for a testimony, 

( When he went out through the land of Egypt : 
W here I heard a language that I understood not. 

6 I removed his shoulder from the burden : 

His hands were delivered from the pots. 

7 Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee ; 

j I answered thee in the secret place of thunder : 
\ I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. 

8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee : 

Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me ; 

9 There shall no strange God be in thee : 

Neither shalt thou worship any strange God. 
10 I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land o£ Egypt 
Open thy mouth wide, and I tc ill fill it. 

LESSON 22. 39 

11 But my people would not hearken to my voice ; 

And Israel would none of me. 

12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: 

And they walked in their own counsels. 

13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, 

And Israel had walked in my ways ! 

14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, 

And turned my hand against their adversaries. 

15 The haters of the Lord should have submitted themselves unto him: 

But their time should have endured for ever. 

16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat : 

And with honey out of the roclc should I have satisfied t/iee. 


Psalm LXXXIV. 

HOW amiable are thy tabernacles,

6 Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well: 

The rain cdso fllleth the pools. 

7 They go from strength to strength, 

Every one of them in Zion appeareth before God. 

8 O Lord God of hosts, hear my prayer : 

Give ear, God of Jacob. 

9 Behold, O God our shield, 

And look npon the face of thine anointed. 
10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand.

Thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger. 

4 Turn us, O God of our salvation, 

And cause thine anger toward us to cease. 

5 Wilt thou be angry with us for ever ? 

Wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations ? 

6 Wilt thou not revive us again : 

That thy people may rejoice in thee? 

7 Shew us thy mercy, O.Lord, 

And grant us thy salvation. 

8 j I will hear what God the Lord will speak: 

1 For he will speak peace unto his people, and to his saints • 
But let them not turn again to folly. 

9 Surely his salvation is nigh them that fear him ; 

That glory may dwell in our land. 

10 Mercy and truth are met together; 

Righteousness and peace have kissed each other. 

11 Truth shall spring out of the earth ; 

And righteousness shall look down from heaven.

And our land shall yield her increase. 

13 Righteousness shall go before him ; 

And shall set us in the way of his steps*

And his throne as the days of heaven. 

30 If his children forsake my law, 

And walk not in my judgments ; 


31 If they break my statutes, 

And keep not my commandments ; 

32 Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, 

And their iniquity with stripes. 

33 Nevertheless my- lovingkindness will Lnot utterly take from him, 

Nor suffer my faithfulness to fail. 

34 My covenant will I not break, 

Nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

Yet is their strength labour and sorrow ;

Psalm CIV. 

BLESS the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; 
Thou art clothed with honour and majesty. 

2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: 

TT7/0 stretchest out the heavens like a curtain: 

3 j Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: 
( Who maketh the clouds his chariot . 

Who walkcth upon the icings of the wind: 

4 Who maketh his angels spirits; 

Sis ministers a flaming fire: 

5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, 

That it should not be removed for ever. 

6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: 

The waters stood above the mountains. 

7 At thy rebuke they fled ; 

At the voice of thy thunder they hasted away, 

8 They go up by the mountains ; they go down by the valleys, 

Unto the place which thou hast founded for them. 
!> Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; 
T/tat they turn not again to cover the earth. 

10 lie sendeth the springs into the valleys, 

Which run among the hills. 

11 They give drink to every beast of the field : 

The icild asses quench their thirst. 

12 By them shall the fouls of the heaven have their habitation, 

Which sing among the branches.

And herb for the service of man :

16 The trees of the Lord are full of sap; 

The cedars of Lebanon, which lu i hath planted y 

17 Where the birds make their n< 

As for the stork, the fir trees are her house. 


18 The nigli hills are a refuge for the wild goats; 

And the rocks for the conies. 

19 He appointed the moon for seasons : 

The sun knoweth his going down. 

20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: 

Wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth. 

21 The young lions roar after their prey, 

And seek their meat from God. 

22 The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, 

And lag them down in their dens 

23 Man goeth forth unto his work 

And to his labour until the evening. 

24 O Loud, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all : 

The earth is full of thy riches. 

25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, 

Both small and great beasts. 

26 There go the ships : 

There is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein. 

27 These wait all upon thee; 

That thou mayest give them their meat in due season. 

28 That thou givest them they gather: 

Thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good. 

29 Thou hid est thy face, they are troubled : 

Thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust, 

30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: 

And thou renewest the face of the earth. 

31 The glory of the Loud shall endure for ever: 

The Lord shall rejoice in his zoorks. 

32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: 

He toucheth the hills, and they smoke. 

33 I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live : 

1 will sing praises to my God while I have my being. 

34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: 

Twill be glad in the Lord.

And let the wicked be no more.

From the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south. 

4 They wandered in the wilderness, in a solitary way ; 

They found no city to dwell in. 

5 Hungry and thirsty, 

Their sold fainted in them. 

6 Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, 

And he delivered them out of their distresses.

That they might go to a city of habitation.

27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, 

And are at their icWs end.

And he bringeth them out of their distresses.

37 And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, 

Which may yield fruits of i)icrease. 

38 He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; 

And suffereth not their cattle to decrease. 

39 Again, they are minished and brought low, 

Through oppression, affliction, and sorroio. 

40 He poureth contempt upon princes, 

And causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where then is no way. 

41 Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, 

And maketh him families like a flock.

LESSON 40. 69 

Psalm CXXIII. 

TTNTO thee I lift up mine eyes, 

^ thou that dicellest in the heavens. 

2 Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, 

And as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress ; 
So our eyes wait upon the Lord our God, 
Until that he have mercy upon us. 

3 Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us : 

For ice are exceedingly filled with contempt. 

4 Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease, 

And with the contempt of the proud. 

Psalm CXXV. 

rTlIIEY that trust in the Lord shall be as Mount Zion, 
-*- Which cannot be removed, but abldeth for ever. 
'2 As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, 

So the Lord is round aboid his people, from henceforth even for ever, 

3 For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous ; 

Lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity. 

4 Do good, O Lord, unto those that be good, 

And to them that are upright in their hearts. 

5 As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, 

The Lord shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity. 
But peace shall be urox Israel. 


"DEIIOLP, now good and how pleasant it is 
*-* For brethren to dwell together in unity. 

2 j It is like the precious ointment upon the head, 

( That ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: 
That went down to the skirts of his garments / 

3 As the dew of Ilermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains 

of /ion : 
Fur there 'he Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. 


Psalm CXXXIV. 

"DEIIOLD, bless ye the Lokd, all ye servants of the Lord,

2 Ye that stand in the house of the Lord, 

In the courts of the house of our God, 

3 Praise the Lord; for the Lord is good : 

Sing praises unto his name / for it is pleasant, 

4 For the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto himself, 

And Israel for his peculiar treasure. 

5 For I know that the Lord is great, 

And that our Lord is above all gods. 

6 Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, 
In the seas, and all deep places. 

He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth ; 
He maketh lightnings for the rain ; 
lie bringeth the wind out of his treasuries. 
6 Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, 

Both of man and beast. 
Who sent tokens and wonders into the midst of thee, O Egypt, 
Upon Pharaoh, and iqion all his servants. 

10 Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings; 

1 1 ( Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, king of Bashan, 
I And all the kingdoms of Canaan: 

12 And gave their land for a heritage, 

A heritage unto Israel his people. 

13 Thy name, O Lord, endureth for ever ; 

And thy memorial, Lord, throughout all generation. 

14 For the Lord will judge his people, 

And lie will repent himself concerning his servants. 

LESSON 41. 71 

15 The idols of the heathen are silver and gold, 

Tlie work of man's hands. 

16 They have mouths, but they speak not; 

Eyes have they, but they see not ; 

17 They have ears, but they hear not; 

Neither is their any breath in their mouths, 

18 They that make them are like unto them: 

So is every one that trusteth in them, 

19 Bless the Lord, O house of Israel: 

Bless the Lord, house of Aaron :

3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, 

And strengthenedst me with strength in my soid. 

4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O Lord, 

When they hear the words of thy mouth. 

5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the Lord: 

For great is the glory of the Lord. 

6 Though the Lord be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly .' 

But the proud he knoweth afar off. 
1 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me. 

ST/iou shall stretch forth thine hand against the icrath of mine enemies^ 
And thy right hand shall save me. 
8 { The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me:

Psalm CXXXIX. 

( A LORD, thou hast searched me, and known me. 
( VJ 2 Thou knowest my downsitting and mine uprising; 
Thou understandest my thought afar off, 

3 Thou compassest my path and my lying down, 

And art acquainted with all my icays. 

4 For there is not a word in my tongue, 

But lo, Lord, thou knoioest it altogether, 

5 Thou hast beset me behind and before, 

And laid thine hand upon me. 

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; 

It is high, I cannot attain unto it. 
1 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? 

Or whither shall I flee from thy jyresence f 

8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: 

If I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there, 

9 If I take the wings of the morning, 

And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea/ 

10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, 

And thy right hand shall hold me. 

11 If I say. Surely the darkness shall cover me; 

Even the night shall be light about me. 

12 j Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; 
( But the night shineth as the day : 

Tlie darkness and the light are both alike to thee. 

13 For thou hast possessed my reins: 

Thou hast covered me in my mother's womb. 

14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: 

Marvellous are thy works / and that my soul knoweth right well, 

15 My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, 

And curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth, 

16 j Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect ; 
( And in thy book all my members were written, 

Which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them 

17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! 

How great is the sum of them ! 

18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand : 

When I awake, I am slill with thee. 

LESSON 33. 78 

19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God ! 

Depart from me, therefore, ye bloody men. 

20 For they speak against thee wickedly, 

And thine enemies take thy name in vain. 

21 Do not I hate them, O Lord, that hate thee? 

.1 d am I not grieved with those that rise up against thee f 

22 I hate them with perfect hatred : 

I count them mine enemies. 

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart : 

Try me, a?id know my thoughts : 

24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, 

And lead me in the icay everlasting. 

Psalm CXLIV. 

BLESSED be the Lord my strength, 
Which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight. 

2 My goodness, and my fortress ; 

My high tower, and my deliverer ; 
My shield, and he in whom I trust ; 
Who subdueth my people under me. 

3 Lord, what is man, that thou takest knowledge of him ! 

Or the son of man, that thou makest account of him ! 

4 Man is like to vanity : 

His days are as a shadow that passeth away. 

5 Bow thy heavens, O Lord, and come down : 

Touch the mountains, and they shall smoke. 

6 Cast forth liMitnin^r, and scatter them : 

Shoot out thine arrows, and destroy them. 
V Send thine hand from above ; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, 
From the hand of strange children ; 

8 Whose mouth speaketh vanity, 

And their rigid hand is a right hand of falsehood. 

9 I will sing a new song unto thee, O God : 

Upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praise* 
to thee. 
10 It is he that giveth salvation unto kir. _ 

Who deliverelh David his servant from the hurtful sword. 


1 1 j Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, 
( Whose mouth speaketh vanity, 

And their right hand is a right hand of falsehood : 

12 That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth ; 

That our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude 
of a palace ; 

1 3 That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store ; 

That our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our 
streets : 

14 That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor 

going out : 
That there be no complaining in our streets. 

15 Happy is that people, that is in such a case : 

Yea, happy is that people whose God is the Lord.

Isaiah XI, 1-9 

A ND there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, 
** And a Brandt shall grow out of his roots : 

2 And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, 

The spirit of wisdom and understanding. 
The spirit of counsel and might, 

The spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord J 

3 And shall make him of quick understanding, 

In the fear of the Lord : 
And he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, 
Neither reprove after the hearing of his ears : 

4 But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, 

And reprove with equity for the meek of the earth. 
And he shall smite the earth with the rod of his mouth, 
And icith the breath of his lips shall he slag the icicked, 

5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, 

And faithfulness the girdle of his reins. 

6 Trie wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, 

And the leopard shall lie down with the kid ; 
And the calf, and the young lion, and the fatling together; 
And a little child shall lead them. 

7 And the cow and the bear shall feed ; their young ones shall lie down together ; 

And the Hon shall eat straw like the ox. 

8 And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp,

And will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, 
And give thee for a covenant of the people, 
For a light of the Gentiles ;

Neither my praise to graven images.

Isaiah LV, 1-13. 

1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, 

And lie that hath no money : come ye, buy, and eat ; 
Yea, come, buy wine and milk, 

Without money and without price. 

2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? 

And your labour for that which satisfieth not f 
Hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, 
And let your soul delight itself in fatness. 

3 Incline your ear, and come unto me ; 

Hear, and your soul shall live : 
And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, 
Eoen the sure mercies of David. 

4 Behold, I have given him for a witness to the people, 

A leader and commander to the people. 


5 Behold, thou shalt call a nation that thou knowest not, 

And nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee. 
Because of the Lord thy God, and for the Holy One of Israel ; 
For he hath glorified thee. 

6 Seek ye the Lord while he maj be found, 

Call ye upon him while he is near : 
1 Let the wicked forsake his way, : 

And the unrighteous man his thoughts : 
And let him return unto the Lord, and he will have merey upon him; 
And to our God, for he loill abundantly pardon. 

8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, 

Neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. 

9 j For as the heavens are higher than the earth, 
( So are my ways higher than your ways, 

And my thoughts than your thoughts. 

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, 

And returneth not thither, 
But watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, 
That it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth ; 

It shall not return linto me void, 
But it shall accomplish that which I please, 

And it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. 

12 For ye shall go out with joy, 

And be led forth with peace : 
The mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, 
And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. 

13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, 

And instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: 
And it shall be to the Lord for a name, 

For an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off. 

Isaiah XL, 1-13, 22-31. 

/"lOMTORT ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.

And the crooked shall be made straight, 
And the rough places plain : 

5 j And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, 
( And all flesh shall see it together : 

Fur the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it. 

6 The voice said, Cry. 

And he said, What shall I cry f 
All flesh is grass, 

And all the goodlincss thereof is as the flower of the field: 

V j The grass withereth, the flower fadetti : 

Because the spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it : 
Surely the people is grass. 
3 The grass withereth, the flower fadeth : 

But the word of our God shall stand for ever. 
9 O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; 
Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; 
Lift it up, be not afraid ; 

Say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God! 

10 Behold the Lord God will come with strong hand, 

And his arm shall rule for Jiim : 
Behold his reward is with him, 
And his work before him. 

11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd : 

He shall gather the lambs with his arm, 
And cany them in his bosom, 

And shall gently lead those that arc icith young. 

12 Who hath measured th • waters in the hollow of his hand, 

A d I out heaven with the 8}xin, 

And comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, 
And weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills i?i a balance? 

13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, 

Or being his counsellor hath taught him? 

12 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, 

And the inhabitants thereof an as grasshoppers j 


That stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, 
And apreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in : 
23 That bi ingeth the princes to nothing ; 

He maketh the judges of the earth as vanity. 
2 t Yea, they shall not be planted ; year, they shall not be sown: 
Tea, their stock shall not take root in the earth : 
And he shall also blow upon them, and they shall wither, 
And the whirlwind shall take them away as stubble. 

25 To whom then will ye liken me, 

Or shall I be equal ? saith the Holy One. 

26 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things. 

Tliat bringeth out their host by number : 
He calleth them all by names, by the greatness of his might, 
For that he is strong in power; not one faileth. 

27 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, 

And speakest, Israel, 
My way is hid from the Lord, 

And my judgment is passed over from my God? 
°8 Hast thou not known ? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, 

TJie Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, 
Fainteth not, neither is weary ? 

There is no searching of his understanding. 
29 He giveth power to the faint ; 

And to them that have no might he increaseth strength, 
SO Even the youths shall faint and be weary, 

And the young men shall utterly fall : 
31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; 

They shall mount up with wings as eagles ; 
They shall run, and not be weary ; 

And they shall walk, and not faint. 


Isaiah LX : 1-20. 

A RISE, shine: for thy light is come, 
i-*~ And the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. 
2 For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, 
And gross darkness the people: 
But the Lord shall arise upon thee, 
And his glory shall be seen upon thee. 

LESSOxV 4 8. 65 

3 And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, 

A)id kings to the brightness of thy rising. 

4 j Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: 
i All they gather themselves together, 

Tliey come to thee : 
Thy sons shall come from far, 

And thy daughters shall be nursed at thy side. 

5 Then thou shalt see, and flow together, 

And thine heart shall fear and be enlarged / 
Because the abundance of the sea shall be converted into thee, 
The forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee. 

6 ( The multitude of camels shall come unto thee, 
( The dromedaries of Midian and Ephah : 

All they from Sheba shall come : 
They shall bring gold and incense ; 

And they shall shew forth the i^raises of the Lord. 

7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, 

17) e rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto thee: 
They shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, 
And Tic ill glorify the house of my glory. 

8 Who are these that fly as a cloud, 

And as the doves to their wmdoios f 

9 Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, 

To bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with tJiein^ 
Unto the name of the Lord thy God, 

And to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee. 

10 And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, 

And their Icings shall minister unto thee/ 
For in my wrath I smote thee, 

But in my favour have I had mercy on thee. 

11 Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; 

They shall not be shut day nor night ; 
That men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, 
Ami tli at their Icings may be brought. 

12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee shall perish: 

Tea, those nations shall be utterly wasted. 

13 The glory of Lebanon shall come unto thee, 

The fir tree, the ]?ine tree, and the box together, 
To beautify the place of my sanctuary; 

And I will make the place of my feet glorious. 


14 The sons also of them that afflicted thee shall come bending unto thee : 

And all they that despised thee shall bow themselves down at the soles of 
thy feet ; 
And they shall call thee The city of the Lord, 
The Zion of the Holy One of Israel. 

15 Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, 

So that no man went through thee, 
I will make thee an eternal excellency, 

A joy of many generations. 
1G Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, 

And shalt suck the breast of kings : 
And thou shalt know that I the Lord am thy Saviour, 

And thy Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob. 

17 For brass I will bring gold, and for iron I will bring silver, 

And for wood brass, and for stones iron ; 
I will also make thy officers peace, 
And thine exactors righteousness. 

18 Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, 

"Wasting nor destruction within thy borders / 
But thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, 
And thy gates Praise. 

1 9 The sun shall be no more thy light by day ; 

Neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee : 
But the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, 
And thy God thy glory. 

20 Thy sun shall no more go down ; 

Neither shall thy moon withdraw itself / 
For the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, 
And the days of thy mourning shall be ended,

The Songs for the Sanctuary first came before the public in 1865. Of the 
seven years which have passed since, the compiler has spent the larger portion in 
Christian work out of his own country. On his return, he found that the Hymn and 
Tune Book he had issued so inconspicuously had received surprising favor among 
the Churches. He has been compelled to renew the worn-out electrotype plates at

The call has more than once been made for a Manual of more portable size, and 
of a somewhat more familiar and less stately character, for use in the Lecture and 
Prayer-meeting. The opportunity has been chosen, while the new edition was pass-

a number of the popular pieces, which introduce choruses and refrains.

Thine earthly Sabbaths, Lord, we love, 
But there's a nobler rest above ; 
To that our longing souls aspire, 
With cheerful hope and strong desire. 

No more fatigue, no more distress, 
Nor sin nor death shall reach the place ; 
No groans shall mingle with the songs 
That warble from immortal tongues. 

No rude alarms of raging foes, 
No cares to break the long repose, 
No midnight shade, no clouded sun, 
But sacred, high, eternal noon. 

long-expected day, begin ! 
Dawn on these realms of woe and sin ; 
Fain would we leave this weary road, 
And sleep in death to rest with God. 



Eph. 3 

Come, gracious Lord, descend and dwell, 
By faith and love, in every breast ; 
Then shall we know, and taste, and feel 
The joys that cannot be expressed. 
Come, fill our hearts with inward strength, 
Make our enlarged souls possess, 
And learn the height, and breadth, and 

Of thine eternal love and grace. 

Now to the God whose power can do 
More than our thoughts and wishes know, 
Be everlasting honors done, 
By all the church, through Christ his Son. 

2>s. 5: 3. 


My opening eyes with rapture see 
The dawn of thy returning day ; 
My thoughts, O God, ascend to thee, 
While thus my early vows I pay. 

Oh, bid this trifling world retire, 
And drive each carnal thought away ; 
Nor let me feel one vain desire — 
One sinful thought through all the day. 

Then, to thy courts when I repair, 
My soul shall rise on joyful wing, 
The wonders of thy love declare, 
And join the strains which angels sing. 

f>hil. 4. i 7. 


Sweet is the light of Sabbath eve, 
And soft the sunbeams lingering there ; 
For these blest hours the world I leave, 
Wafted on wings of faith and prayer. 

The time how lovely and how still ; 
Peace shines and smiles on all below : 
The plain, the stream, the wood, the hill, 
All fair with evening's setting glow. 

Season of rest ! the tranquil soul 
Feels the sweet calm, and melts to love ; 
And while these sacred moments roll, 
Faith sees the smiling heaven above. 

Nor will our days of toil be long ; 
Our pilgrimage will soon be trod ; 
And we shall join the ceaseless song, 
The endless Sabbath of our God.

To praise thy name, give thanks, and sing;

And talk of all thy truth at night. 

2 Sweet is the day of sacred rest ; 

No mortal care shall seize my breast; 
Oh, may my heart in tune be found, 
Like David's harp of solemn sound ! 

3 My heart shall triumph in my Lord, 
And bless his works and bless his word; 
Thy works of grace, how bright they 

shine ! 
How deep thy counsels ! how divine ! 

4 Lord, I shall share a glorious part, 
When grace hath well refined my heart, 
And fresh supplies of joy are shed, 
Like holy oil to cheer my head. 

5 Then shall I see, and hear, and know 
All I desired or wished below ; 

And every power find sw r eet employ, 
In that eternal world of joy. 

7 2>8. 8£. Watts. 

How pleasant, how divinely fair, 
O Lord of hosts, thy dwellings are ! 
With long desire my spirit faints, 
To meet the assemblies of thy saints. 

2 Blest are the saints who sit on high 
Around thy throne of majesty ; 
Thy brightest glories shine above, 
And all their work is praise and love. 

Blest arc the souls that find a place 
Within the temple of thy grace ; 
There they behold thy gentler rays, 
And seek thy face, and learn thy praise. 

Blest are the men whose hearts are set 
To find the way to Zion's gate ; 
God is their strength, and thro' the road 
They lean upon their helper, God. 

Cheerful theywalk with growing strength, 

Till all shall meet in heaven at length ; 
Till all before thy face appear, 
And join in nobler worship there. 


Ts. //<? s ?. 


Another six days 1 work is done, 
Another Sabbath is begun ; 
Return, my soul ! enjoy thy rest, 
Improve the day thy God has blessed. 

Oh, that our tho'ts and thanks may rise, 
As grateful incense to the skies : 
And draw from heaven that sweet repose, 
Which none, but he that feels it, knows. 

This heavenly calm, within the breast, 
Is the dear pledge of glorious rest, 
Which for the church of God remains — 
The end of cares, the end of pains. 

In holy duties, let the day, 
In holy pleasures, pass away; 

How sweet a Sabbath thus to spend, 
In hope of one that ne'er shall end.

Awake, my soul, and with the sun 
Thy daily stage of duty run ; 
Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise 
To pay thy morning sacrifice. 

2 Awake, lift up thyself, my heart, 
And with the angels bear thy part, 
Who all night long unwearied sing 
High praises to the eternal King. 

3 Glory to thee, who safe hast kept, 
And hast refreshed me while I slept ; 
Grant, Lord, when Ifromdeathshall wake, 
I may of endless life partake. 

4 Lord, I my vows to thee renew : 
Scatter my sins as morning dew ; 
Guard my first springs of thought and will, 
And with thyself my spirit fill. 

5 Direct, control, suggest, this day, 
All I design, or do, or say ; 

That all my powers, with all their might, 
In thy sole glory may unite. 

IO Ps.Sl. Watts. 

Great God ! attend, while Zion sings 
The joy that from thy presence springs ; 
To spend one day with thee on earth 
Exceeds a thousand days of mirth. 

2 Might I enjoy the meanest place 
Within thy house, O God of grace ! 
Not tents of ease, nor thrones of power, 
Should tempt my feet to leave thy door. 

3 God is our sun, he makes our day ; 
God is our shield, he guards our way 
From all the assaults of hell and sin, 
From foes without, and foes within. 

4 All needful grace will God bestow, 
And crown that grace with glory, too;- 
lie gives Us all things, and withholds 
No real good from upright souls. 

5 O God, our King, whose sovereign sway 
The glorious hosts of heaven obey, 
Display thy grace, exert thy power,. 
Till all on earth thy name adore ! 

I I 2>s. ,57. Wrangham. 

Eternal God, celestial King ! 
Exalted be thy glorious name ; 
Let hosts in heaven thy praises sing, 
And saints on earth thy love proclaim. 

2 My heart is fixed on thee, my God I 
I rest my hope on thee alone ; 

I'll spread thy sacred truths abroad, 
To all mankind thy love make known. 

3 Awake, my tongue ! awake, my lyre ! 
With morning's earliest dawn arise ; 
Let songs of joy my soul inspire, 
And swell your music to the skies. 

4 With those who in thy grace abound, 
To thee I'll raise my thankful voice ; 
While every land, the earth around, 
Shall hear, and in thy name rejoice.

From every stormy wind that blows,

There is a calm, a sure retreat ; 

'T is found l>eneath the mercy-seat 

2 There is a place where Jesus sheds 
The oil <>i gladness on our heads, — 
A place, than all besides, more sweet; 
It is the blood-bought mercy-seat. 

3 There is a -'•cue where spirits blend. 
Where friend holds fellowship with

Though sundered far, by faith they meet 
Around one common mercy -scat. 

4 There, there, on eagle wings we soar. 
And sense and sin molest no more,

I^ Heb.4.t/6 f /e. Logan. 

"Where high the heavenly temple stands, 
The house of God not made with hands, 
A great High Priest our nature wears, — 
The Guardian of mankind appears. 

2 Though now ascended up on high, 
He bends on earth a brother's eye; 
Partaker of the human name, 

He knows the frailty of our frame. 

3 Our Fellow-sufferer yet retains 
A fellow-feeling of our pains; 
And still remembers, in the skies, 
His tears, his agonies, and cries. 

4 In every pang that rends the heart, 
The Man of Sorrows had a part ; 
He sympathizes with our grief, 
And to the sufferer sends relief. 

5 Witli boldness, therefore, at the throne 
Let us make all our sorrows known ; 
And ask the aid of heavenly power, 
To help us in the evil hour.

1 T John Z. : 2/ . Cowper. 

Jesus, where'er thy people meet, 
There they behold thy mercy-seat ; 
Where'er they seek thee, thou art found ; 
And every place is hallowed ground. 

2 For thou, within no walls confined; 
Inhabitest the humble mind ; 

Such ever bring thee where they come, 
And going, take thee to their home. 

3 Great Shepherd of thy chosen few ! 
Thy former mercies here renew ; 
Here to our waiting hearts proclaim 
The sweetness of thy saving name. 

I O Matt. fS : 20. Stennett. 

Where two or three, with sweet accord, 
Obedient to their sovereign Lord, 
Meet to recount his acts of grace, 
And offer solemn prayer and praise ; — 

2 There will the gracious Saviour be, 
To bless the little company ; 
There, to unvail his smiling face, 
And bid his glories fill the place. 

3 We meet at thy command, O Lord ! 
Relying on thy faithful word ; 
Now send the Spirit from above, 
And fill our hearts with heavenly love. 

I 7 Gen. 28 : 77. Kelly.

And seek the presence of our Lord!

That we may here converse with thee : 
Ah ! Lord ! behold us at thy feet ; 
Let this the " gate of -heaven" be. 

3 " Chief of ten thousand !" now appear, 
That we by faith may see thy face : 
Oh ! speak, that we thy voice may hear, 
And let thy presence fill this place. 


/ Pel. 3 : 7. 


What various hindrances we meet 
In coming to a mercy-seat ! 
Yet who that knows the worth of prayer 
But wishes to be often there ? 

2 Prayer makes the darkened clouds with- 

draw ; 
Prayer climbs the ladder Jacob saw, 
Gives exercise to faith and love, 
Brings every blessing from above. 

3 Restraining prayer, we cease to fight; 
Prayer makes the Christian's armor 

bright ; 
And Satan trembles when he sees 
The weakest saint upon his knees. 

4 Have you no words ? ah ! think again ; 
Words flow apace when you complain, 
And fill a fellow-creature's ear 

With the sad tale of all your care. 

5 Were half the breath thus vainly spent 
To heaven in supplication sent, 

Our cheerful song would oftener be, 
" Hear what the Lord hath done forme !"

And yet how slow devotion burns; 
How languid are its flames !

Our frailties, Lord, forgive ; 
We would be like thy saints above, 
And praise thee while we live. 

3 Increase, O Lord, our faith and hope, 

And fit ns to ascend 
Where the assembly ne'er breaks up, 
The Sabbath ne'er shall end; —

With heavenly bistre shine, 

Before the throne of God appear, 

And feasl on love divine ; —

Shall all our p<>\\ era employ ; 
Delighted range the ethereal plains, 
And take our fill of jojr.

To praises low as ours ? 
Thou wilt ! for thou dost love to hear

All evil far remove ; 
And shed abroad in every heart 
Thy everlasting love.

And all my cares and sorrows cast

t John 5: /4- 

There is an eye that never sleeps 
Beneath the wing of night ; 

There is an ear that never shuts, 
When sink the beam- of light 

There is an arm that never tires, 
When human strength gives way 

There i- a love that never fails, 
When earthly loves decay. 


But there's a power which man can wield 

When mortal aid is vain, 
That eye, that arm, that love to reach, 

That listening ear to gain. 

That power is prayer, which soars on 

Through Jesus, to the throne ; 
And moves the hand which moves the 
To bring salvation down !

And banish every fear. 

My great Protector, and my Lord!

Oh ! let thy kind, thy gracious word 

Sustain my trembling heart.

f>s. 65 : 2. 


Prayer is the soul's sincere desire, 

Uttered or unexpressed ; 
The motion of a hidden fire 

That trembles in the breast. 

2 Prayer is the burden of a sigh, 

The falling of a tear, 
The upward glancing of an eye, 
When none but God is near. 

3 Prayer is the simplest form of speech 

That infant lips can try ; 
Prayer the sublimest strains that reach 
The Majesty on high. 

4 Prayer is the Christian's vital breath, 

The Christian's native air: 
His watchword at the gates of death — 
He enters heaven with prayer. 

5 Prayer is the contrite sinner's voice, 

Returning from his ways ; 
While angels in their songs rejoice, 
And cry — " Behold he prays !" 

C O thou, by whom we come to God — 
The Life, the Truth, the Way; 
The path of prayer thyself hast trod ; 
Lord ! teach us how to pray. 


Mark 73 : 33. 


The Saviour bids thee watch and pray 
Through life's momentous hour ; 

And grants the Spirit's quickening ray 
To those who seek his power. 

2 The Saviour bids thee watch and pray, 

Maintain a warrior's strife ; 
O Christian ! hear his voice to-day : 
Obedience is thy life. 

3 The Saviour bids thee watch and pray, 

For soon the hour will come 
That calls thee from the earth away 
To thy eternal home. 

4 The Saviour bids thee watch and pray, 

Oh, hearken to his voice, 
And follow where he leads the way, 
To heaven's eternal joys ! 

?0 / Sam. / .• 19, 13. Beddomb. 

Prayer is the breath of God in man, 
Returning whence it came ; 

Love is the sacred fire within, 
And prayer the rising flame. 

2 It gives the burdened spirit case, 

And soothes the troubled breast ; 
Yields comfort to the mourning soul, 
And to the weary rest. 

3 When God inclines the heart to pray, 

He hath an ear to hear ; 
To him there 's music in a sigh, 
And beauty in a tear. 

4 The humble suppliant cannot fail 

To have his wants supplied, 
Since he for sinners intercedes, 
Who once for sinners died.

And our confessions pour, 
Oh, may we feel the sins we own, 

And hate what we deplore. 

2 Our contrite spirits pitying see ; 

True penitence impart :

And teach our heart 'tis goodness still 
That grants it or denies.

Spirit of truth ! on this thy day, 

To thee for help we cry, 
To guide us through the "dreary way 

Of dark mortality. 

2 We ask not, Lord, the cloven flame, 

Or tongues of various tone ; 
But long thy praises to proclaim, 
With fervor in our own. 

3 No heavenly harpings soothe our ear, 

No mystic dreams we share ; 

Yet hope to feel thy comfort near, 

And bless thee in our prayer. 

4 When tongues shall cease, and power 
And knowledge empty prove, 
Do thou thy trembling servants stay, 
With faith, and hope, and love. 

2 3 Key. 5 : /S. Watts. 

Come, let us lift our joyful eyes 

Up to the courts above, 
And smile to see our Father there, 

Upon a throne of love. 

2 The peaceful gates of heavenly bliss 
Are opened by the Son ; 
High let us raise our notes of praise, 
And reach the almighty throne. 

7 A Luke 24. : 29. Anom. 

God of the sun-light hours, how sad 
Would evening shadows be, 

Or night, in deeper sable clad, — 
If aught were dark to thee ! 

2 How mournfully that golden gleam 

Would touch the thoughtful heart, 
If, with its soft, retiring beam, 
We saw thy love depart. 

3 But, tho' the gathering gloom may hide 

Those gentle rays awhile, 
Yet they who in thy house abide, 
Shall ever share thy smile. 

4 Then let creation's volume close, 

Though every page be bright ; 
On thine, still open, we repose 
With more intense delight.

He gave the seas their bound ; 
The watery worlds are all his own, 
And all the solid ground.

Come, bow before the Lord :

A refuge in distress :

Our eyes have often seen, — 
How well our God secures the fold 
Where his own sheep have been. 

5 In every new distress, 

We'll to his house repair ; 
We'll think upon his wondrous grace, 
And seek deliverance there.

My God, permit my tongue 
This joy, to call thee mine ; 

And let my early cries prevail 
To taste thy love divine. 

2 For life, without thy love, 

No relish can afford ; 
No joy can be compared with this, 
To serve and please the Lord. 

3 In wakeful hours of night, 

I call my God to mind ; 
I think how wise thy counsels are, 
And all thy dealings kind. 

4 Since thou hast been my help, 

To thee my spirit flies ; 
And on thy watchful providence 
My cheerful hope relies. 

5 The shadow of thy wings 

My soul in safety keeps ; 
I follow where my Father leads, 
And he supports my steps.

While we tremble at thy law,

Risen with gladness in thy beams !

From thy dawn in glory streams ; 

Airs of heaven are breathed around, 

And each place is holy ground.

From thy perfect work didst rest ; 
By the souls that own thy sway 

Hallowed be its hours and blest ;

This day given to heaven alone ! 

Saviour ! who this day didst break 
The dark prison of the tomb ; 

Bid my slumbering soul awake, 

Shine through all its sin and gloom : 

Let me, from my bonds set free, 

Rise from sin, and live to thee. 

Blessed Spirit ! Comforter ! 

Sent this day from Christ on high ; 
Lord, on me thy gifts confer, 

Cleanse, illumine, sanctify ! 
All thine influence shed abroad, 
Fill me with the peace of God.

If thy light is hid from me ; 
Joyless is the day's return, 

Till thy mercy's beams I see ; 
Till they inward light impart, 
Warmth and gladness to my heart. 

3 Visit, then, this soul of mine ; 

Pierce the gloom of sin and grief; 
Fill me, radiant Sun divine ! 

Scatter all my unbelief ; 
More and more thyself display, 
Shining to the perfect day.

Up to Jehovah's throne ;

Before the morning light — 
Once on the chilling mount did stay, 
And wrestle all the night.

Before the morning bright, 
On heavenly mountains far away, 
While we toil here in night.

The storm shall cease to rave.

And still thou lov'st the quiet spot 
Where praise the lowly spirit fills.

May taste his grace, and learn his name ;

A brighter world beyond the skies ; 
Here, shines the light which guides our 

From earth to realms of endless day.

It's truths with meekness to receive,

In every star thy wisdom shines; 
But when our eyes behold thy word,

And nights and days thy power confess, 
But the blest volume thou hast writ, .

Round the whole earth, and never stand : 
So, when thy truth began its race, 

It touched and glanced on every land.

Till through the world thy^ truth has run ; 
Till Christ has all the nations blessed

Thy love my thoughts shall fill ; 
Resigned, when storms of sorrow lower,

The gathering storm shall see ; 

My steadfast heart shall know no fear ; 
That heart will rest on thee. 




When all thy mercies, O my God !

Transported with the view, I'm lost 

In wonder, love, and praise. 
Ten thousand thousand precious gifts 

My daily thanks employ ; 
Nor is the least a cheerful heart, 

That tastes those gifts with joy.

Thy goodness I'll pursue ; 
And after death, in distant worlds,

Through all eternity, to thee 

A joyful song I'll raise :

1 J_ T Almighty Power. H. K. White. 

The Lord, our God, is full of might, 

The winds obey his will ; 
He speaks, — and, in his heavenly height, 

The rolling sun stands still. 

2 Rebel, ye waves, and o'er the land 

With threatening aspect roar ; 
The Lord uplifts his awful hand, 
And chains you to the shore. 

3 Howl, winds of night, yourf orce combine ; 

Without his high behest, 
Ye shall not, in the mountain pine, 
Disturb the sparrow's nest. 

4 His voice sublime is heard afar, 

In distant peals it dies ; 
He yokes the whirlwind to his car, 
And sweeps the howling skies. 

5 Ye nations, bend — in reverence bend ; 

Ye monarchs, wait his nod, 
And bid the choral song ascend 
To celebrate your God. 

lA-t) Omnipotence.— Isa.12 : /,.. Watts. 

The Lord, how fearful is his name ! 

How wide is his command ! 
Nature, with all her moving frame, 

Rests on his mighty hand. 
2 Immortal glory forms his throne, 

And light his awful robe ; 
While with a smile, or with a frown, 

lie manages the globe. 

3 A word of his almighty breath 

Can swell or sink the seas ; 
Build the vast empires of the earth, 
Or break them as he please. 

4 On angels, with unvailed face 

His glory beams above ; 
On men, he looks with softest grace, 
And takes his title, Love. 




Keep silence, all created things ! 

And wait your Maker's nod ; 
My soul stands trembling, while she sings 

The honors of her God. 

2 Life, death, and hell, and worlds unknown, 

Hang on his firm decree ; 
He sits on no precarious throne, 
Nor borrows leave to be. 

3 His providence unfolds the book, 

And makes his counsels shine ; 
Each opening leaf, and every stroke, 
Fulfills some deep design. 

4 My God ! I would not long to see 

My fate, with curious eyes — 
What gloomy lines are writ for me, 
Or what bright scenes may rise. 

5 In thy fair book of life and grace, 

Oh ! may I find my name 
Recorded in some humble place, 
Beneath my Lord, the Lamb.

But sweet will be the flower. 

G Blind unbelief is sure to err, 
And scan his work in vain ;

And he will make it plain.

I see him in the evening cloud, 
And in the morning sky. 

3 lie smiles, we live! lie frowns, we die! 

Wc bang upon his word ; 
He rears his mighty arm on high, 
Wc fall before his sword.

Then, when his thunders cease, 
He paints his rainbow on tie- storm, 
And lulls the winds to peace.

Horn. 72:2. 


Make us, by thy transforming grace, 
Dear Saviour, daily more like thee ! 
Thy fair example may we trace, 
To teach us what we ought to be ! 

To do thy heavenly Father's will 
Was thy employment and delight ; 
Humility and holy zeal 
Shone through thy "life divinely bright. 

But ah ! how blind ! how weak we arc! 
How frail ! how apt to turn aside ! 
Lord, we depend upon thy care, 
And ask thy Spirit for our guide. 

1 6 7 / Tim./ : fo. 

Not to condemn the sons of men, 
Did Christ, the Son of God, appear ; 
No weapons in his hands are seen, 
No flaming sword, nor thunder there. 

2 Such was the pity of our God, 
He loved the race of man so well, 
He sent his Son to bear our load 

Of sins, and save our souls from hell. 

3 Sinners, believe the Saviour's word ; 
Trust in his mighty name, and live : 
A thousand joys his lips afford, 
His hands a thousand blessings give. 

1 64. Malt. // / 2S. Bowring. 

How sweetly flowed the gospel sound 
From lips of gentleness and grace, 
When listening thousands gathered 

And joy and gladness filled the place ! 

2 From heaven he came, of heaven bespoke, 
To heaven he led his followers' way ; 
Dark clouds of gloomy night he broke, 
Unvailing an immortal day. 

3 " Come, wanderers, to my Father's home. 
Come, all ye weary ones, and rest :" 
Yes, sacred Teacher, we will come, 
Obey thee, love thee, and be blest ! 

4 Decay then, tenements of dust ; 
Pillars of earthly pride, decay : 
A nobler mansion waits the just, 
And Jesus has prepared the way.

I 6 8 Matt. 27 : 45. Watts. 

Alas ! and did my Saviour bleed, 
And did my Sovereign die ? 

Would he devote that sacred head 
For such a worm as I ? 

2 Was it for crimes that I had done 

He groaned upon the tree ? 
Amazing pity ! grace unknown ! 
And love beyond degree ! 

3 Well might the sun in darkness hide, 

And shut his glories in, 
When Christ, the great Creator, died 
For man, the creature's sin. 

4 Thus might I hide my blushing face 

While his dear cross appears ; 
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness, 
And melt my eyes to tears. 

5 But drops of grief can ne'er repay 

The debt of love I owe ;' 
Here, Lord, I give myself away, 
'Tis all that I can do. 

1 OQ Malt. 27 : 50-53. Wesley. 
Behold the Saviour of mankind, 

Nailed to the shameful tree ! 
How vast the love that him inclined 
To bleed and die for me ! 

2 Hark! hQwhe groans, while nature shakes^ 

And earth's strong pillars bend! 
The temple's vail asunder breaks, 
The solid marbles rend. 

3 'Tis finished ! now the ransom's paid, 

" Receive my soul !" he cries : 
See — how he bows his sacred head ! 
He bows his head and dies ! 

4 But soon he '11 break death's iron chain, 

And in full glory shine ; 
Lamb of God i was ever pain — 
Was ever love like thine ! 

Gal. 5 : 2£. 



Oh ! if my soul were formed for woe, 
How would I vent my sighs ! 

Repentance should like rivers flow 
From both my streaming eyes. 

2 'T was for my sins my dearest Lord 

Hung on the cursed tree, 
And groaned away a dying life 
For thee, my soul ! for thee. 

3 Oh! how I hate these lusts of mine 

That crucified my Lord ; 
Those sins thatpierccdandnailedhisflesh 
Fast to the fatal wood ! 

4 Yes, my Redeemer — they shall die ; 

My heart has so decreed; 
Nor will I spare the guilty things 
That made my Saviour bleed. 

5 While with a melting, broken heart, 

My murdered Lord I view, 
I'll raise revenge against my sins, 
And slay the murderers. too.

I saw One hanging on a tree, 

In agony and blood ; 
Who fixed his languid eyes on me, 

As near the cross I stood. 

2 Sure, never, till my latest breath, 

Can I forget that look : 
It seemed to charge me with his death, 
Though not a word he spoke. 

3 Alas ! I knew not what I did, — 

But now my tears are vain; 
Where shall my trembling soul be hid, 
For I the Lord have >lain ! 

4 A second look he gave, that said, 

M I freely all forgive : 
This blood is for thy ransom paid ; 
I die that thou may'st live."

Among the sons of men ; 
Fairer is he than all the fail-

He flew to my relief ; 
For me he bore the shameful cross, 
And carried all my grief.

And all the joys I have ; 
He makes me triumph over death, 
He saves me from the grave.

Shows me the glories of my God, 
And makes my joy complete.

Not all the outward forms on earth, 
Nor rites that God has given, 

Nor will of man, nor blood, nor birth, 
Can raise a soul to heaven. 

2 The sovereign will of God alone 

Creates us heirs of grace ; 
Born in the image of his Son, 
A new, peculiar race. 

3 The Spirit, like some heavenly wind, 

Breathes on the sons of flesh, 
New-models all the carnal mind, 
And forms the man afresh. 

4 Our quickened souls awake and rise 

From the long sleep of death ; 

On heavenly things we fix our eyes, 

And praise employs our breath. 

200 Matt. 7 .*/4. Watts. 

Strait is the way, the door is strait, 
That leads to joys on high ; 

'T is but a few that find the gate 
While crowds mistake and die. 

2 Beloved self must be denied, 

The mind and will renewed, 
Passion suppressed, and patience tried, 
And vain desires subdued. 

3 Lord ! can a feeble, helpless worm, 

Fulfill a task so hard ? 
Thy grace must all my work perform, 
And give the free reward. 

2 O I Rom. 3 ; f9. Watts. 

Vain are the hopes, the sons of men 
On their .own works have built ; 

Their hearts, by nature, all unclean, 
And all their actions, guilt. 

2 Let Jew and Gentile stop their mouths, 

Without a murmuring word ; 
And the whole race of Adam stand 
Guilty before the Lord. 

3 Jesus ! how glorious is thy grace ; — 

When in thy name we trust, 
Our faith receives a righteousness, 
That makes the sinner just. 

Zech.9 :12. 


How sad our state by nature is ! 

Our sin — how deep it stains ! 
And Satan holds our captive minds 

Fast in his slavish chains. 

2 But there's a voice of sovereign grace, 

Sounds from the sacred word : 

" Ho ! ye despairing sinners, come, 

2\nd trust a pardoning Lord." 

3 My soul obeys the almighty call, 

And runs to this relief ; 
I would believe thy promise, Lord : 
Oh, help my unbelief ! 

4 A guilty, weak, and helpless worm, 

On thy kind arms I fall ; 
Be thou my Strength and Righteousness, 
My Saviour and my All.

And peace and pardon from the skies 
Arc offered by thy hands.

Thy name forever blessed. 

Rom. 7 : 7-fS, 



Lord, how secure my conscience was, 
And felt no inward dread ! 

I was alive without the law, 

And thought my sins were dead. 

2 My hopes of heaven were firm and bright; 

But since the precept came 
With a convincing power and light, • 
I find how vile I am. 

3 My o-uilt appeared but small before, 

Till terribly 1 saw 
How perfect, holy, just, and pure, 
Is thine eternal law. 

4 Then felt my soul the heavy load; 

My sins revived again : 
I had provoked a dreadful God, 
And all my hopes were slain. 

5 My God, I cry with every breath 

For some kind power to save, 
To break the yoke of Bin and death, 
And thus redeem the slave.

Why will ye waste on trifling cares 
That life which God's compassion spares? 
While, in the various range of thought, 
The one thing needful is forgot ? 

2 Shall God invite you from above ? 
Shall Jesus urge his dying love ? 

Shall troubled conscience give you pain ? 
And all these pleas unite in vain ? 

3 Not so your eyes will always view 
Those objects which you now pursue : 
Not so will heaven and hell appear, 
When death's decisive hour is near. 

4 Almighty God ! thy grace impart ; 
Fix deep conviction on each heart ; 
Nor let us waste on trifling cares 
That life which thy compassion spares. 


While life prolongs its precious light, 
Mercy is found, and peace is given ; 
But soon, ah ! soon, approaching night 
Shall blot out every hope of heaven. 

2 While God invites, how blest the day ! 
How sweet the gospel's charming sound ! 
Come, sinners, haste, oh, haste away, 
While yet a pardoning God is found. ' 

3 Soon, borne on time's most rapid wing, 
Shall death command you to the grave, 
Before his bar your spirits bring, 

And none be found to' hear or save. 

4 In that lone land of deep despair 

No Sabbath's heavenly light shall rise ; 
No God regard your bitter prayer, 
Nor Saviour call you to the skies. 

5 Now God invites — how blest the day ! 
How sweet the gospel's charming sound ! 
Come, sinners, haste, oh, haste away, 
While yet a pardoning God is found. 

Gen. 6 : 3. 



Say, sinner ! hath a voice within 
Oft whispered to thy secret soul, 
Urged thee to leave the ways of sin, 
And yield thy heart to God's control ? 

2 Sinner ! it was a heavenly voice, — 
It was the Spirit's gracious call ; 

It bade thee make the better choice, 
And haste to seek in Christ thine all. 

3 Spurn not the call to life and light ; 
Regard, in time, the warning kind ; 
That call thou may'st not always slight. 
And yet the gate of mercy find. 

4 God's Spirit will not always strive 
With hardened, self-destroying man ; 
Ye who persist his love to grieve, 
May never hear his voice again. 

5 Sinner ! perhaps, this very day, 
Thy last accepted time may be : 

Oh ! shouldst thou grieve him now away, 
Then hope may never beam on thee.

Come, with your guilt and fear oppressed, 
And make this last resolve : — 

2 " I'll go to Jesus, though my sins 

Like mountains round me close 
I know his courts, I'll enter in, 
Whatever may oppose. 

3 " Prostrate I'll lie before his throne, 

And there my guilt confess ; 

I'll tell him I'm a wretch undone, 

Without his sovereign grace. 

4 " Perhaps he will admit my plea, 

Perhaps will hear my prayer ; 
But if I perish, I will pray, 
And perish only there. 

5 " I can but perish if I go ; 

I am resolved to try ; 
For if I stay away, I know 
I must forever die." 


Gen. G l 3. 


There is a line, by us unseen, 

That crosses every path, 
The hidden boundary between 

God's patience and his wrath. 

To pass that limit is to die, 

To die as if by stealth ; 
It docs not quench the beaming eye, 

Nor pale the glow, of health. 

3 Oh ! where is this mysterious bourne 

By which our path is crossed ; 
Beyond which God himself hath sworn 
That he who goes is lost ? 

4 How far may we go on to sin ? 

How long will God forbear ? 
Where does hope end, and where begin 
The confines of despair ?

" Ye that from God depart, 
While it is called to-day, repent, 
And harden not your heart."

Or outward form of prayer, 

But let it in thy heart be known 
That penitence is there.

God asketh not of thee ; 
Thy secret soul he bids thee bend 

In true humility. 

Oh ! let us, then, with heartfelt grief, 

Draw near unto our God, 
And pray to him to grant relief, 

And stay the lifted rod. 

O righteous Judge ! if thou wilt deign 

To grant us what we need, 
We pray for time to turn again, 

And grace to turn indeed.

God, your Saviour, asks you — Why ? 
He who did your souls retrieve, 
Died himself, that ye might live. 
Will ye let him die in vain ? 
Crucify your Lord again % 

Why, ye ransomed sinners, why 
Will ye slight his grace, and die ? 

3 Sinners, turn, why will ye die ? 
God, the Spirit asks you— Why ? 
He, who all your lives hath strove, 
Urged you to embrace his love : 
Will ye not his grace receive ? 
Will ye still refuse to live ? 

O ye dying sinners ! why, 
Why will ye forever die ?

Pilgrim, burdened with thy sin, 
Come the way to Zion's gate ; 

There, till mercy speaks within, 

Knock, and weep, and watch, and wait 

Knock — he knows the sinner's cry : 
Weep — he loves the mourner's tears ; 

Watch, for saving grace is nigh ; 
Wait, till heavenly grace appears. 

2 Hark ! it is the Saviour's voice, 

" Welcome, pilgrim, to thy rest !" 
Now within the gate rejoice, 

Safe, and owned, and bought,andblcst: 
Safe, from all the lures of vice ; 

Owned, by joys the contrite know ; 
Bought by love, and life the price ; 

Blest, the mighty debt to owe. 

3 Holy pilgrim ! what for thee 

In a world like this remains ? 
From thy guarded breast shall flee 

Fear, and shame, and doubts,and pains: 
Fear, the hope of heaven shall fly, 

Shame, from glory's view retire ; 
Doubt, in full belief, shall die, 

Pain, in endless bliss, expire. 

Bpk. 5 : 11. 


Sinner ! rouse thee from thy sleep ; 
Wake, and o'er thy folly weep ; 
Raise thy spirit, dark and dead ; 
Jesus waits his light to shed. 
2 Be not blind and foolish still ; 
Called of Jesus, learn his will ; 
Jesus calls from death and night, 
Jesus waits to shed his light.

When I survey the wondrous cross, 
On which the Prince of glory died, 
My richest- gain I count but loss, 
And pour contempt on all my pride. 

2 Forbid it, Lord ! that I should boast, 
Save in the death of Christ, my God ; 
All the vain things that charm me most 
I sacrifice them to his blood. 

3 See, from his head, his hands, his feet, 
Sorrow and love flow mingled down ; 
Did e'er such love and sorrow meet, 
Or thorns compose so rich a crown ? 

4 His dying crimson, like a robe, 
Spreads o'er his body on the tree ; 
Tli en I am dead to all the globe, 
And all the globe is dead to me.

That were a present far too small ; 
Love so amazing, so divine, 
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Show pity, Lord ! O Lord, forgive; 
Let a repenting rebel live ; 
Are not thy mercies large and free ?. 
May not a sinner trust in thee ? 

2 Oh, wash my soul from every sin, 
And make my guilty conscience clean ! 
Here on my heart the burden lies, 
And past offences pain mine eyes. 

My lips with shame my sins confess, 
Against thy law, against thy grace ; 
Lord, should thy judgment grow severe, 
I am condemned, but thou art clear. 

Should sudden vengeance seize my breath, 
I must pronounce thee just in death; 
And if my soul were sent to hell, 
Thy righteous law approves it well. 

Yet save a trembling sinner, Lord ! 
Wouldlighton some sweet promise there, 
Some sure support against despair.

A broken heart for sacrifice.

And owns thy dreadful sentence just : 
Look down, O Lord, with pitying eye, 
And save the soul condemned to die. 

3 Then will I teach the world thy ways ; 
Sinners shall learn thy sovereign grace : 
I'll lead them to my Saviour's blood, 
And they shall praise a pardoning God. 

4 Oh, may thy love inspire my tongue ! 
Salvation shall be all my song ; 
And all my powers shall join to bless 
The Lord,my Strength and Righteousness.

C. Wesley. 

Lo ! on a narrow neck of land, 
Twixt two unbounded seas, I stand, 

Secure ! insensible ! 
A point of time, a moment's space, 
Removes me to yon heavenly place, 

Or shuts me up in hell. 

2 God ! my inmost soul convert, 
And deeply on my thoughtful heart 

Eternal things impress: 
Give me to feel their solemn weight, 
And save me ere it be too late ; 

Wake me to righteousness. 

3 Before me place, in dread array, 
The pomp of that tremendous day, 

When thou with clouds shalt come 
To judge the nations at thy bar; 
And tell me, Lord ! shall I be there 

To meet a joyful doom ! 

I Be this my one great business here, — 
With holy trembling, holy fear, 

To make my calling sure ! 
Thine utmost counsel to fulfill, 
And suffer all thy righteous will, 

And to the end endure ! 

5 Then Saviour, then my soul receive, 

Then bid me in thy presence live, 

And reign with thee above ; 

Where faith is sweetly lost in sight, 
And hope, in full, supreme delight, 
And everlasting love. 

200 John 3:3. Ockum. 

Awaked by Sinai's awful sound, 
My soul in bonds of guilt I found, 

And knew not where to go ; 
One solemn truth increased my pain, 
"The sinner must be born again," 

Or sink to endless woe. 

2 I heard the law its thunders roll, 
While guilt lay heavy on my soul — 

A vast oppressive load ; 
All creature-aid I saw was vain ; 
" The sinner must be born again," 

Or drink the wrath of God. 

3 The saints I heard with rapture tell — 
How Jesus conquered death and hell 

To bring salvation near ; 
Yet still I found this truth remain — 
" The sinner must be born again," 

Or sink in deep despair. 

4 But while I thus in anguish lay, 

The bleeding Saviour passed that way, 
My bondage to remove ; 

The sinner, mice by justice slain, 
X<»w by his grace is born again, 
And sings redeeming love.

267 «/** ^5 .• ^. Newton. 
Sweet was the time when first I felt 

The Saviour's pardoning blood 
Applied to cleanse my soul from guilt, 
And bring me home to God. 

2 Soon as the morn the light revealed, 

His praises tuned my tongue ; 
And, when the evening shade prevailed, 
His love was all my song. 

3 In prayer, my soul drew near the Lord, 

And saw his glory shine ; 
And when I read his holy word, 
I called each promise mine. 

4 Now, when the evening shade prevails, 

My soul in darkness mourns ; 
And when the morn the light reveals, 
No lio-ht to me returns. 

5 Rise, Saviour ! help me to prevail, 

And make my soul thy care ; 
I know thy mercy cannot fail, 
Let me that mercy share. 

268 Rom. 7 : 21. Stennett. 

With tears of anguish I lament, 
Here, at thy feet, my God, 

My passion, pride, and discontent, 
And vile ingratitude. 

2 Sure, never was a heart so base, 1 
So false as mine has been; 
So faithless to its promises, 
So prone to every .sin. 

Reason, I hear, her counsels weigh, 
And all her words approve ; 

But still I find it hard to obey, 
And harder yet to love. 

How long, dear Saviour, shall I feel 
These struggles in my breast? 

When wilt thou bow my stubborn will, 
And give my conscience rest ? 

Break, sovereign grace, oh, break the 

And set the captive free ; 
Reveal, almighty God, thine arm, 

And haste to rescue me. 


Isa. 66 ; 2. 

C. Wesley. 

Oh ! for that tenderness of heart, 
That bows before the Lord ; 

That owns how just and good thou art, 
And trembles at thy word. 

Oh ! for those humble, contrite tears, 
Which from repentance flow ; 

That sense of guilt which, trembling, fears 
The long-suspended blow ! 

Saviour ! to me, in pity give, 

For sin, the deep distress ; 
The pledge thou wilt, at last, receive, 

And bid me die in peace. 

Oh ! fill my soul with faith and love, 
And strength to do thy will ; 

Raise my desires and hopes above, — 
Thyself to me reveal.

Depth of mercy ! — can there be 
Mercy still reserved for me ? 
Can my God his wrath forbear ? 
Me, the chief of sinners, spare ? 

2 I have long withstood his grace ; 
Long provoked him to his face ; 
Would not hearken to his calls ; 
Grieved him by a thousand falls. 

3 Kindled his relentings are ; 
Me he now delights to spare ; 
Cries, How shall I give thee up ? — 
Lets the lifted thunder drop. 

4 There for me the Saviour stands ; 
Shows his wounds and spreads his hands! 
God is love ! I know, I feel : 

Jesus weeps, and loves me still. 

Malt. 5 : 3. 


When, my Saviour, shall I be 
Perfectly resigned to thee? 
Poor and vile in mine own eyes, 
Only in thy wisdom wise ? 

2 Only thee content to know, 
Ignorant of all below ? 
Only guided by thy light, 
Only mighty in thy might? 

3 Fully in my life express 
All the heights of holiness ? 
Sweetly let my spirit prove 
All the depths of humble love. 

C. Wesley. 

2 7 T Ps. G : 1, 2. Lyte. 

Gently, gently, lay the rod 
On my sinful head, O God ! 
Stay thy wrath, in mercy stay, 
Lest I sink beneath its sway. 

2 Heal me, for my flesh is weak ; 
Heal me, for thy grace I seek ; 
This my only plea I make, — 
Heal me for thy mercy's sake. 

3 Lo ! he comes — he heeds my plea; 
Lo ! he comes — the shadows flee ; 
Glory round me dawns once more ; 
Rise, my spirit ! and adore. 

276 Isa.32 : 17. Anon. 

Prince of Peace, control my will ; 
Bid this struggling heart be still ; 
Bid my fears and doubtings cease ; 
Hush my spirit into peace. 

2 Thou hast bought me with thy blood, 
Opened wide the gate to God : 
Peace I ask — but peace must be, 
Lord, in being one with thee. 

3 May thy will, not mine, be done ; 
May thy will and mine be one ; 
Chase these doubtings from my heart ; 
Now thy perfect peace impart. 

4 Saviour ! at thy feet I fall ; 
Thou my life, my God, my all ! 
Let thy happy servant be 

One forevennore with thee !

I am poor and weak and blind ; 
I am counting all hut dros< :

2 Long my heart has sighed for thee ; 

Long has evil dwelt within ; 
Jesus sweetly speaks to me, 

I will cleanse you from all sin. — Cho. 

3 Here I give my all to thee, — 

Friends and time and earthly store ; 
Soul and body thine to be — 

Wholly thine forevermore. — Cho. 

4 In the promises I trust ; 

Now I feel the blood applied ; 
I am prostrate in the dust ; 

I with Christ am crucified. — Cho.

'T is a point I long to know, 

Oft it causes anxious thought ; 
Do I love the Lord, or no ? 

Am I his, or am I not \ 
2 Could my heart so hard remain, 

Prayer a task and burden prove, 
Every trifle give me pain, 

If I knew a Saviour's love ? 
:i Yet I mourn my stubborn will, 

Find my sin a grief and thrall ; 
Should I grieve for what I feel, 

If I did not love at all '. 
± Lord, decide the doubtful ease, 

Thou who art thy people's Sun ; 
Shine upon thy work of grace, 

If it be indeed begun.

Jesus ! lover of my soul, 

Let me to thy bosom fly 
While the billows near me roll, 

While the tempest still is high. 
Hide me, my Saviour ! hide, 

Till the storm of life is past; 
Safe into the haven guide ; 

Oh, receive my soul at last ! 

2 Other refuge have T none ; 

Hangs my helpless soul on thee ; 
Leave, ah ! leave me not alone, 

Still support and comfort me. 
All my trust on thee is stayed ; 

Alfmy help from thee I bring; 
Cover my defenceless head 

With the shadow of thy wing. 

3 Thou, Christ ! art all I want ; 

More than all in thee I find ; 
Raise the fallen, cheer the faint, 

Heal the sick, and lead the blind. 
Just and holy is thy name, 

I am all unrighteousness ; 
Vile. and full of sin I am, 

Thou art full of truth and grace. 

4 Plenteous grace with thee is found,— 

Grace to pardon all my sin ; 
Let the healing streams abound, 
Make and keep me pure within ; 

Thou of life the fountain art, 
Freely let me take of thee ; 

Spring thou up within my heart, 
Rise to all eternity. 


Deut. 32:$/. 


Lord, thou art my rock of strength, 

And my home is in thine arms ; 
Thou wilt send me help at length, 

And I feel no wild alarms : 
Sin nor death can pierce the shield 

Thy defence has o'er me thrown, 
Up to thee myself I yield, 

And my sorrows are thine own. 

When my trials tarry long 

Unto thee I look and wait , 
Knowing none, though keen and strong 

Can my trust in thee abate ; 
And this faith I long have nursed, 

Comes alone, O God, from thee ; 
Thou my heart didst open first, 

Thou didst set this hope in me. 

Let thy mercy's wings be spread 

O'er me, keep me close to thee ; 
In the peace thy love doth shed, 

Let me dwell eternally ! 
Be my all: in all I do, 

Let me only seek thy will ; 
Let my heart to thee be true 

And thus peaceful, calm, and still

Saviour, when in dust, to thee 
Low we bow the adoring knee ; 
When, repentant, to the skies 
Scarce we lift our streaming eyes : 
Oh ! by all thy pain and woe, 
Suffered once for man below, 
Bending from thy throne on high, 
Hear thy people while they cry. 

2 By thy birth and early years, 
By thy human griefs and fears, 
By thy fasting and distress 

In the lonely wilderness : 
By thy victory in the hour 
Of the subtle tempter's power ; 
Jesus, look with pitying eye ; 
Hear thy people while they cry. 

3 By thine hour of dark despair, 
By thine agony of prayer, 

By the purple robe of scorn, 

By thy wounds — thy crown of thorn ; 

By thy cross — thy pangs and cries ; 

By thy perfect sacrifice ; 

Jesus, look with pitying eye ; 

Hear thy people while they cry. 

4 By thy deep expiring groan, 
By the sealed sepulchral stone, 
By thy triumph o'er the grave, 
By thy power from death to save ; 

Mighty God, ascended Lord, 
To thy throne in heaven restored, 
Saviour, Prince, exalted high, 
Hear thy people while they cry. 

285 2 Cor. 7 : 5. 

Oh, this soul, how dark and blind ! 
Oh, this foolish, earthly mind ! 
Oh, this froward, selfish will, 
Which refuses to be still ! 
Oh, these ever-roaming eyes, 
Upward that refuse to rise ! 
Oh, these wayward feet of mine, 
Found in every path but thine ! 

2 Oh, this stubborn, prayerless knee, 
Hands so seldom clasped to thee, 
Longings of the soul, that go 
Like the wild wind, to and fro ! 
To and fro, without an aim, 
Turning idly whence they came, 
Bringing in no joy, no bliss, 
Only adding weariness ! 

3 Giver of the heavenly peace ! 
Bid, oh, bid these tumults cease ; 
Minister thy holy balm ; 

Fill me with thy Spirit's calm : 
Thou, the Life, the Truth, the Way, 
Leave me not in sin to stay ; 
Bearer of the sinner's guilt, 
Lead me, lead me, as thou wilt !

There is no majesty in him

His paths are never dim ; 
And he comes nigh to us when we 

Dare not come nigh to him. 
Let us be simple with him then, 

Not backward, stiff, nor coll. 
As though our Bethlehem could bo 

What Sinai was of old.

2 Q 7 &*. US .* 22. Chandler. 

Christ is our Corner-stone ; 

On him alone we build; 
With his true saints alone 

The courts of heaven are filled : 

On his great love 
Our hopes we place, 

Of present grace 
And joys above 

2 Oh, then, with hymns of praise 

These hallowed courts shall ring ! 
Our voices we will raise, 
The Three in One to sing ; 
And thus proclaim Both loud and long, 
In joyful song, That glorious Name. 

2 Q4- Luke I : ?9. C. Wesley. 

Blow ye the trumpet, blow ! 

The gladly solemn sound; 
Let all the nations know, 

To earth's remotest bound, 
The year of jubilee is come ; 
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home. 

2 Exalt the Lamb of God, 

The sin-atoning Lamb ! 
Redemption by his blood, 

Through every land, proclaim : 
The year of jubilee is come; 
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home. 

3 Jesus, our great High Priest, 

1 1 as full atonement made ; 
Ye weary spirits, real : 

Ye mourning souls, be glad : 
The year of jubilee is come; 
Return, ye ransomed sinners, home.

Stand up, my soul, shake off thy fears, 
Aud gird the gospel armor on ; 
March to the gates of endless joy, 
Where Jesus, thy great Captain 's gone. 

2 Hell and thy sins resist thy course ; 
But hell and sin are vanquished foes ; 
Thy Saviour nailed them to the cross, 
And sung the triumph when he rose. 

3 Then let my soul march boldly on, — 
Press forward to the heavenly gate ; 
There peace and joy eternal reign, 
And glittering robes for conquerors wait. 

4 There shall I wear a starry crown, 
And triumph in almighty grace, 
While all the armies of the skies 
Join in my glorious Leader's praise. 

2 Q 6 Tact . 10 : 2S-.?f. Watts. 

Awake, our souls ! away, our fears ! 
Let every trembling thought be gone ; 
Awake, and run the heavenly race, 
And put a cheerful courage on ! 

2 True, 't is a strait and thorny road, 
And mortal spirits tire and faint ; 
But they forget the mighty God, 
Who feeds the strength of every saint — 

3 The mighty God, whose matchless power 
Is ever new and ever young, 

And firm endures, while endless years 
Their everlasting circles run. 

4 From thee, the overflowing spring, 
Our souls shall drink a fresh supply ; 
While such as trust their native strength 
Shall melt away, and droop, and die. 

5 Swift as an eagle cuts the air, 
We'll mount aloft to thine abode ; 
On wings of love our souls shall fly, 
Nor tire amid the heavenly road ! 

&ph. G : /2. 



Awake, my soul ! lift up thine eyes ; 
See where thy foes against thee rise, 
In long array, a numerous host ; 
Awake, my soul ! or thou art lost. 

2 See where rebellious passions rage, 
And fierce desires and lusts engage ; 
The meanest foe of all the train 

Has thousands and ten thousands slain. 

3 Thou treadest on enchanted ground ; 
Perils and snares beset thee round ; 
Beware of all, guard every part — 
But most the traitor in thy heart. 

4 The terror and the charm repel. 

The powers of earth, and powers of hell ; 
The Man of Calvary triumphed here : 
Why should his faithful followers fear? 

5 Come then, my soul ! now learn to wield 
The weight of thine immortal shield ; 
Put on the armor, from above, 

Of heavenly truth, and heavenly love.

They view the triumph from afar,

I 'm not ashamed to own my Lord, 

Or to defend his cause ;

The glory of his cross. 

2 Jesus, my God ! — I know his name — 

His name is all my trust ; 
Nor will he put my soul to shame, 
Nor let my hope be lost. 

3 Firm as his throne his promise stands, 

And he can well secure 
What I've committed to his hands, 
Till the decisive hour. 

4 Then will he own my worthless name 

Before hi> Father's face, 
And in the new Jerusalem 
Appoint my soul a place.

Amazing grace ! how sweet the sound 
That saved a wretch like me ! 

I once was lost, but now am found — 
Was blind, but now I see.

And grace my fears relieved ;

'T is grace hath brought me safe thus far, 
And grace will lead me home. 

4 Yea — when this flesh and heart shall fail, 

And mortal life shall cease, 
I shall possess, within the vail, 
A life of joy and peace.

Whence do our mournful thoughts arise, 
And where 's our courage fled ? 

Has restless sin, or raging hell, 
Struck all our comforts dead ? 

2 Have we forgot the almighty Name 
That formed the earth and sea ? 
And can an all-creating arm 
Grow weary or decay ? 

3 Treasures of everlasting might 

In our Jehovah dwell ; 
He gives the conquest to the weak, 
And treads their foes to hell. 

4 Mere mortal power shall fade and die, 

And youthful vigor cease ; 
But we who. wait upon the Lord 
Shall feel our strength increase. 

5 The saints shall mount on eagles' wings 

And taste the promised bliss, 
Till their unwearied feet arrive 
Where perfect pleasure is.

And in example live ; 
Their faith, and hope, and mighty deeds 
Still fresh instruction give.

They conquered every foe ; 
And to his power and matchless grace 
Their crowns of life they owe.

God's glory is a wondrous thing, 
Most strange in all its ways, 

And, of all things on earth, least like 
What men agree to praise. 

2 Oh, blest is he to whom is given 

The instinct that can tell 
That God is on the field, when he 
Is most invisible ! 

3 And blest is he who can divine 

Where real right doth lie, 
And dares to take the side that seems 

Wrong to man's blindfold 


4 Oh, learn to scorn the praise of men ! 

Oh, learn to lose with God ! 
For Jesus won the world through shame, 
And beckons thee his road. 

5 And right is right, since God is God ; 

And right the day must win ; 
To doubt would be disloyalty, 

To falter would be sin !

When comforts arc declining,

A season of clear shining,

And find it ever new; 
Set free from present sorrow,

Let the unknown to-morrow 

Bring with it what it may. 

It can bring with it nothing, 

But lie will bear us through ; 
Who gives the lilies clothing, 

AVill clothe his people too : 
Beneath the spreading heavens, 

No creature but is fed ; 
And he who feeds the ravens, 

Will give his children bread. 

Though vine nor" fig-tree neither, 
Their wonted fruit should bear, 

Though all the fields should wither, 
Nor flocks nor herds be there ; 

Yet God the same abiding, 

His praise shall tunc my voice, 

For while in him confiding, 
I cannot but rejoice.

No change my heart shah fear, 
And safe is such confiding, 

For nothing changes here : 
The storm may roar without me, 

My heart may low be laid, 
But God is round about me, 

And can I be dismayed ? 

Wherever he may guide me, 

No want shall turn me back ; 
My Shepherd is beside me, 

And nothing can I lack : 
His wisdom ever waketh, 

His sight is never dim : 
He knows the way he taketh, 

And I will walk with him. 

Green pastures are before me, 

Which yet I have not seen ; 
Bright skies will soon be o'er me, 

Where darkest clouds have been : 
My hope I cannot measure ; 

My path to life is free ; 
My Saviour has my treasure, 

And he will walk with me.

Its curious work, its living soul ; 
But his who for my ransom came ; - 
Slain for my sake, he claims the whole. 

Oh, not my own the grace that keeps 
My feet from fierce temptations free ; 
Oh, not my own the thought that leaps, 
Adoring, blessed Lord, to thee.

When life, with all its toils, is o'er, 
And thou thy trembling lamb shalt bring 
Safe home, to wander nevermore.

Fountain of grace, rich 
What need I, that is not in thee : 
Full pardon, strength to meet the day, 
And peace which none can take away. 

2 Doth sickness fill my heart with fear, 
'Tis sweet to know that thou art near; 
Am I with dread of justice tried, 

'T is sweet to know that Christ hath died. 

3 In life, thy promises of aid 
Forbid my heart to be afraid ; 

In death, peace gently vails the eyes, — 
Christ rose, and I shall surely rise. 

^28 &eb. 2 : fG. Gisbokne. 

Saviour, when night involves the skies, 
My soul, adoring, turns to thee ; 
Thee, self-abased in mortal guise, 
And wrapped in shades of death for me. 

2 On thee my waking raptures dwell, 
When crimson gleams the east adorn; 
Thee, Victor of the grave and hell ; 
Thee, Source of life's eternal morn. 

3 When noon her throne in light arrays, 
To thee my soul triumphant springs ; 
Thee, throned in glory's endless blaze ; 
Thee, Lord of lords, and King of kings. 

4 O'er earth when shades of evening steal. 
To death and thee my thoughts I give ; 
To death, whose power 1 soon must feel ; 
To thee, with whom I trust to live.

My soul complete in Jesus stands ! 
It fears no more the law's demands ; 
The smile of God is sweet within, 
Where all before was guilt and sin. 

2 My soul at rest in Jesus lives ; 
Accepts the peace his pardon gives ; 
Receives the grace his death secured, 
And pleads the anguish he endured. 

3 My soul its every foe defies, 

And cries — 'Tis God that justifies: 
Who charges God's elect with sin ? 
Shall Christ, who died their peace to win? 

4 A song of praise my soul shall sing, 
To our eternal, glorious King ! 
Shall worship humbly at his feet, 
In whom alone it stands complete.

Light of the soul ! O Saviour blest ! 
Soon as thy presence fills the breast, 
Darkness and guilt are put to flight, 
And all is sweetness and delight.

EIow glad is he who feels thee nigh ! 
Come in thy hidden majesty ; 

Fill us with love, fill us with thee.

But evermore to babes revealed ; 
Through him, unto the Father be 
G lory and praise eternally !

Dear Refuge of my weary soul,

On thee, when waves of trouble roll,

For thou alone canst heal ; 
Thy word can bring a sweet relief 
For every pain I feel. 

3 But oh ! when gloomy doubts prevail, 

I fear to call thee mine ; 
The springs of comfort seem to fail, 
And all my hopes decline. 

4 Yet, gracious God, where shall I flee ? 

Thou art my only trust : 
And still my soul would cleave to thee, 
Though prostrate in the dust.

Here let my soul retreat, 
With humble hope attend thy will, 
And wait beneath thy feet.

While here on earth I rove ;

All time and toil and care ; 

Labor is rest, and pain is sweet, 
If thou, my God, art here.

Thy face, O God, I seek, — 
Attend the whispers of thy grace, 
And hear thee inly speak.

Enter into my Master's joy, 
And find my heaven in thee.

Who can resist thy heavenly love, 

Or trifle with thy blood ? 

'T is by the merits of thy death 
Thy Father smiles again ; 

'T is by thine interceding breath 
The Spirit dwells with men. 

Till God in human flesh I see, 
My thoughts no comfort find : 

The holy, just, and sacred Three 
Are terrors to my mind. 

But if Immanuel's face appear, 
My hope, my joy, begin : 

His name forbids my slavish fear ; 
His grace removes my sin. 

While Jews on their own law rely, 
And Greeks of wisdom boast, 

I love the incarnate Mystery, 
And there I fix my trust.

And drives away his fear.

And calms the troubled breast ; 
'T is manna to the hungry soul, 
And to the weary, rest.

My Prophet, Priest, and King ;

And cold my warmest thought ; 
But when I see thee as thou art, 
I'll praise thee as I ought,

With every fleeting breath ; 
And may the music of thy name,

That earth and heaven should hear.

My transport and my trust ; 
Jewels, to thee, are gaudy toys, 
And Lcold is sordid dust. 

All my capacious powers can wish, 
In thee doth richly meet ; 

Not to mine eyes is light so dear, 
Nor friendship half so sweet. 

Thy grace still dwells upon my heart, 
And sheds its fragrance there ; — 

The noblest balm of all its wounds, 
The cordial of its care.

And in thy presence rest.

Nor can the memory find 
A sweeter sound than thy blest name, 
O Saviour of mankind !

O Joy of all the meek ! 
To those who fall, how kind thou art ! 
How good to those who seek !

Nor tongue nor pen can show ; 
The love of Jesus, what it is, 
None but his loved ones know.

All is dying ; hearts arc breaking 

Which to ours were closely bound : 
And the lips have ceased from speaking 

"Which once uttered such sweet sound ; 
And the arms are powerless lying, 

Which were our support and stay ; 
And the eyes are dim and dying, 

Which once watched us night and day. 

2 Everything we love and cherish 

Hastens onward to the grave ; 
Earthly joys and pleasures perish, 

And whate'er the world e'er gave. 
All is fading, all is fleeing ; 

Earthly flames must cease to glow, 
Earthly beings cease from being, 

Earthly blossoms cease to blow. 

3 Yet unchanged while all decayeth, 

Jesus stands upon the dust ; 
Lean on me alone, he sayeth ; 

Hope and love, and firmly trust ! 
Oh, abide, abide with Jesus, 

Who himself forever lives, 
Who from death eternal frees us, 

Yea, who life eternal gives !

Yet how rich is my condition,

Heaven will bring me sweeter rest ! 
Oh ! 't is not in grief to harm me, 

While thy love is left to me ; 
Oh ! 't were not in joy to charm me, 

Were that joy unmixed with thee. 

Go then, earthly fame and treasure ! 

Come disaster, scorn, and pain ! 
In thy service pain is pleasure, 

With thy favor, loss is gain. 
I have called thee, Abba, Father ! 

I have stayed my heart on thee ! 
Storms may howl, and clouds may gather, 

All must work for good to me.

Think what Father's smiles are thine ; 
Think that Jesus died to win thee ;

Armed by faith, and winged by prayer!

Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days, 
Hope shall change to glad fruition,

We, alas ! forget too often 
What a friend we have above.

Jesus only, when the darkness 

Gathers round my weary head. 

2 Jesus only, when the billows 

Cold and sullen o'er me roll ; 
Jesus only, when the trumpet 

Bends the tomb and wakes the soul. 

3 Jesus only, when in judgment 

Boding fears my heart appall ; 
Jesus only, when the wretched 
On the rocks and mountains call.

Saviour, hear us, through thy merit 
Lowly bending at thy feet ; 

Oh, draw near us by thy Spirit ; 
Prostrate at thy mercy-seat. 

For the joys of thy salvation, 
Still we raise our cries to thee ; 

Hear the voice of supplication, 
Set our souls at liberty. 


Matt. 2S : 20. Nevin. 

Always with us, always with us — 
Words of cheer and words of love ; 

Thus the risen Saviour whispers, 
From his dw T elling-place above. 

With us when we toil in sadness, 
Sowing much and reaping none ; 

Telling us that in the future 
Golden harvests shall be won. 

With us when the storm is sweeping 
O'er our pathway dark and drear ; 

Waking hope within our bosoms, 
Stilling every anxious fear. 

With us in the lonely valley, 

When we cross the chilling stream ; 

Lighting up the steps to glory 
With salvation's radiant beam.

Saviour ! teach me, day by day, 
Love's sweet lesson to obey ; 
Sweeter lesson cannot be, 
Loving him who first loved me. 

With a child-like heart of love, 
At thy bidding may I move ; 
Prompt to serve and follow thee, 
Loving him who first loved me. 

Teach me all thy steps to trace, 
Strong to follow in thy grace ; 
Learning how to love from thee, 
Loving him who first loved me. 

Love in loving finds employ — 
In obedience all her joy ; 
Ever new that joy will be, 
Loving him who first loved me. 

Thus may I rejoice to show 
That I feel the love I owe ; 
Singing, till thy face I see, 
Of his love who first loved me.

Led by Jesus Christ the Lord, 

In my weakness, thus shall I

Learn to die without a fear, 
Feeling thee, my Saviour, near.

And Christ is dearer 
Than yesterday, to me ; 
His love and light 
Fill all my soul to-night. — Cho.

To show the glory, 
Where Christ's flock enter in 
How it did shine

And rest comes nearer,

1 . 'T is by the faith of joys to come "We walk thro' deserts dark as night 










u l 


Till we ar - rive at heaven, our home, Faith is our guide, and faith our light. 






Faith.— Heb. // : S. Watts. 

? T is by the faith of joys to come 
We walk through deserts dark as night ; 
Till we arrive at heaven, our home, 
Faith is our guide, and faith our light. 

2 The want of sight she well supplies ; 
She makes the pearly gates appear ; 
Far into distant worlds she pries, 
And brings eternal glories near. 

3 Cheerful we tread the desert through, 
While faith inspires a heavenly ray ; 
Though lions roar, and tempests blow, 
And rocks and dangers fill the way. 

7 6 Self-denial.— Luke 9 .' 23. Keble. 

If on our daily course our mind 
Be set, to hallow all we find, 
New treasures still, of countless price, 
God will provide for sacrifice. 

2 Old friends, old scenes, will lovelier be, 
As more of heaven in each we see ; 
Some softening gleam of love and prayer 
Shall dawn on every cross and care. 

3 The trivial round, the common task, 
Will furnish all we ought to ask ; — 
Room to deny ourselves, a road 

To bring us daily nearer God. 

4 Only, O Lord, in thy dear love, 

Fit us for perfect rest above ; 1 

And help us this and every day, 
To live more nearly as we pray. 

^67 Love.—/ Cor. /«?:/. Watts. 

Had I the tongues of Greeks and Jews, 
And nobler speech than angels use, v 
If love be absent, I am found 
Like tinkling brass, an empty sound. 

2 Were I inspired to preach and tell 
All that is done in heaven and hell — 
Or could my faith the world remove, 
Still I am nothing without love. 

3 Should I distribute all my store 

To feed the hungry, clothe the poor ; 
Or give my body to the flame, 
To gain a martyr's glorious name : 

4 If love to God and love to men 
Be absent, all my hopes are vain ; 
Nor tongues, nor gifts, nor fiery zeal, 
The work of love can e'er fulfill. 


Tiltes 2 : /0-/3. Watts. 


So let our lips and lives express 
loly gospel we profess ; 


So let our works and virtues shine, 
To prove the doctrine all divine. 

2 Thus shall we best proclaim abroad 
The honors of our Saviour God ; 
When his salvation reigns within, 
And grace subdues the power of sin. 

3 Religion bears our spirits up, 
While we expect that blessed hope,— 
The bright appearance of the Lord : 
And faith stands leaning on his word.

Gratitude.— Lam. 3 : 23. 


My God, how endless is thy love ! 
Thy gifts are every evening new ; 
And morning mercies from above, 
Gently distill like early dew. 

2 Thou spread'st the curtains of the night, 
Great guardian of my sleeping hours ; 
Thy sovereign word restores the light, 
And quickens all my drowsy powers. 

3 I yield my powers to thy command ; 
To thee I consecrate my days ; 
Perpetual blessings from thine hand 
Demand perpetual songs of praise. 

370 Completeness.— Col. 2 : 70. A. R. W. 

Complete in thee ! no work of mine 
May take, dear Lord, the place of thine ; 
Thy blood has pardon bought for me, 
And I am now complete in thee. 

2 Complete in thee — no more shall sin, 
Thy grace has conquered, reign within ; 
Thy voice will bid the tempter flee, 
And I shall stand complete in thee. 

3 Complete in thee — each want supplied, 
And no good thing to me denied, 
Since thou my portion, Lord, wilt be, 

I ask no more — complete in thee. 

4 Dear Saviour ! when, before thy bar 
All tribes and tongues assembled are, 
Among thy chosen may I be 

At thy right hand — complete in thee. 

^71 Contentment.— 'Phil. I : //. Guion. 

O Lord, how full of sweet content 
Our years of pilgrimage are spent ! 
Where'er we dwell, we dwell with thee, 
In heaven, in earth, or on the sea. 

2 To us remains nor place nor time ; 
Our country is in every clime : 

We can be calm and free from care 
On any shore, since God is there. 

3 While place we seek, or place we shun, 
The soul finds happiness in none ; 

But with our God to guide our way, 
'T is equal joy to go or stay. 

4 Could we be cast where thou art not, 
That were indeed a dreadful lot ; 
But regions none remote we call, 
Secure of finding God in all. 

372 Meekness.— Mali, a : S. J. Scott. 

Happy the meek whose gentle breast, 
Clear as the summer's evening ray, 
Calm as the regions of the blest, 
Enjoys on earth celestial day. 

2 His heart no broken friendships sting, 
No storms his peaceful tent invade ; 
He rests beneath th' Almighty's wing, 
Hostile to none, of none afraid. 

3 Spirit of grace, all meek and mild ! 
Inspire our breasts, our souls possess: 
Repel each passion rude and wild, 
And bless us as we aim to bless.

Shouldst give that gift to me ? 

2 How many hearts thou mightst have had 

More innocent than mine !

It is thy boast to come,

In darkest spots a home.

Seem trifles less than light — 
Earth looks so little and so low 
When faith shines full and bright.

If thou canst be, Faith, 
The treasure that thou art in life. 
What wilt thou be in death ! 

"7J A Godly Sincerity.— Ep7i. 5: 8. Barton. 

Walk in the light ! so shalt thou know 

That fellowship of love, 
His Spirit only can bestow, 

Who reigns in light above. 

2 Walk in the light \ and thou shalt find- 
Thy heart made truly his, 
Who dwells in cloudless light enshrined, 
In whom no darkness is. 

3 Walk in the light ! and ev'n the tomb 

No fearful shade shall wear ; 
Glory shall chase away its gloom, 
For Christ hath conquered there. * 

4 Walk in the light ! and thou shalt see 

Thy path, though thorny, bright, 
For God by grace shall dwell in thee, 
And God himself is light. 



S 7 5 Gentleness.—^ Tim. 2 

Speak gently — it is better far 

To rule by love than fear ; 
Speak gently — let no harsh word mar 

The good we may do here. 

2 Speak gently to the young — for they 

Will have enough to bear ; 
Pass through this life as best they may 
'T is full of anxious care. 

3 Speak gently to the aged one, 

Grieve not the careworn heart; 
The sands of life are nearly run, 
Let them in peace depart. 

4 Speak gently to the erring ones — 

They must have toiled in vain ; 
Perchance unkindness made them so ; 
Oh, win them back again ! 

5 Speak gently — 't is a little thing, 

Dropped in the heart's deep well ; 
The good, the joy, that it may bring, 
Eternitv shall tell.

Calm in the bustling street, — 

Calm in the hour of buoyant health, 

Calm in the hour of pain, 
Calm in my poverty or wealth,

Like him who bore my shame, 

Calm 'mid the threatening, taunting 
Who hate thy holy name. 

Calm me, my God, and keep me calm, 

Soft resting on thy breast ; 
Soothe me with holy hymn and psalm, 

And bid my spirit rest.

Father of mercies ! send thy grace, 

All powerful from above, 
To form, in our obedient souls, 

The image of thy love. 

Oh, may our sympathizing breasts 
The generous pleasure know, 

Kindly to share in others' joy, 
And weep for others' woe ! 

3 When the most helpless sons of grief 

In low distress are laid, 
Soft be our hearts their pains to feel, 
And swift our hands to aid. 

4 So Jesus looked on dying men, 

When throned above the skies ; 
And mid the embraces of his God, 
He felt compassion rise. 

5 On wings of love the Saviour flew, 

To raise us from the ground, 
And made the richest of his blood 
A balm for every wound.

A st ranger's woes to feel ; 
And bleeds in pity o'er the wound 
He wants the power to heal. 

3 He spreads his kind, supporting arms, 

To every child of grief ; 
His secret bounty largely flows, 
And brings unasked relief. 

4 To gentle offices of love 

His feet are never slow : 
He views, through mercy's melting eye, 
A brother in a foe. 

5 Peace from the bosom of his God, 

The Saviour's grace shall give ; 
And when he kneels before the throne, 
His trembling soul shall live.

Scorn not the slightest word or deed, 
Nor deem it void of power ; 

There's fruit in each wind-wafted seed, 
That waits its natal hour. 

2 A whispered word may touch the heart, 

And call it back to life ; 
A look of love bid sin depart, 
And still unholy strife. 

3 No act falls fruitless ; none can tell 

How vast its power may be, 
Xor what results infolded dwell 
Within it silently. 

4 Work on, despair not, bring thy mite, 

Nor care how small it be ; 
God is with all that serve the right, 
The holy, true, and free.

Spirituality.— iRom. 8 : /J. C. Wesley. 

Abba, Father, hear thy child, 
Late in Jesus reconciled ; 
Hear, and all the graces shower, 
All the joy, and peace, and power ; 
All my Saviour asks above, 
All the life and heaven of love. 

2 Heavenly Father, Life divine, 
Change my nature into thine : 
Move and spread throughout my soul, 

Renovate and fill the whole ; 
Lord, I will not let thee go 
Till the blessing thou bestow. 

Holy Ghost, no more delay ; 
Come, and in thy temple stay : 
Now, thine inward witness bear, 
Strong, and permanent, and clear : 
Spring of life, thyself impart ; 
Rise eternal in my heart. 


Charity.—/ Cor. 73 : /. 


Though I speak with angel tongues 
Bravest words of strength and fire, 
They are but as idle songs, 
If no love my heart inspire ; 
All the eloquence shall pass 
As the noise of sounding brass. 

2 Though I lavish all I have 
On the poor in charity, 

Though I shrink not from the grave, 
Or unmoved the stake can see, — 
Till by love the work be crowned, 
All shall profitless be found. 

3 Come, thou Spirit of pure love, 
Who didst forth from God proceed, 
Never from my heart remove ; 

Let me all thy impulse heed ; 
Let my heart henceforward be 
Moved, controlled, inspired by thee.

I Consecration.— f>*. 119 : 94.. Anon. 

Now, O God, thine own I am ! 

Now I give thee back thine own : 
Freedom, "friends, and health, and fama, 

Consecrate to thee alone : 
Thine I live, thrice happy I ! 
Happier still if thine I die. 

2 Take me, Lord, and all my powers ; 

Take my mind, and heart, and will ; 
All my goods, and all my hours, 

All" I know, and all I feel, 
All I think, or speak, or do — 
Take my soul and make it new !

^Q2 &om.72:5. Fawcett. 

Blest be the tie that binds 
Our hearts in Christian love : 

The fellowship of kindred minds 
Is like to that above. 

2 Before our Father's throne 

We pour our ardent prayers ; 
Our fears, our hopes, our aims are one, 
Our comforts and our cares. 

:> We share our mutual woes, 
Our mutual burdens bear ; 
And often for each other flows 
The sympathizing tear. 

4 When we asunder part, 

It gives us inward pain ; 
But we shall still be joined in heart, 
And hope to meet again. 

5 This glorious hope revives 

Our courage by the way ; 
While each in expectation lives, 
And longs to see the day. 

6 From sorrow, toil, and pain, 

And sin, we shall be free, 
And perfect love and friendship reign 

Through all eternity. 

2Q2 Matt. 18: 20. 

Jesus, we look to thee, 

Thy promised presence claim ; 
Thou in the midst of us shalt be, 

Assembled in thy name. 

C. Wesley. 

2 Not in the name of pride 

Or selfishness we meet ; 
From nature's paths we turn aside, * 
And worldly thoughts forget. 

3 We meet the grace to take, 

Which thou hast freely given ; 
We meet on earth for thy dear sake, 
That we may meet in heaven. 

4 Present we know thou art, 

But oh, thyself reveal ! 
Now, Lord, let every bounding heart 
Thy mighty comfort feel. 

5 Oh, may thy quickening voice 

The death of sin remove ; 
And bid our inmost souls rejoice, 
In hope of perfect love. 

/ Cor. 72 : 73. 



Let party names no more 

The Christian world o'erspread ; 

Gentile and Jew, and bond and free, 
Are one in Christ their head. 

2 Among the saints on earth, 

Let mutual love be found ; 
Heirs of the same inheritance, 
With mutual blessings crowned. 

3 Thus will the church below 

Resemble that above ; 
Where streams of pleasure ever flow, 
And every heart is love.

When I can read my title clear

And storms of sorrow fall ; 
May I but safely reach my home,

In seas of heavenly rest ; 
And not a wave of trouble roll 

Across my peaceful breast.

For lo ! the everlasting God 
Proclaims himself my friend.

That God is love, that God is love. 

2 When fear her chilling mantle flings 
O'er earth, my soul to heaven above, 
As to her native home, upsp rings, 
For God is love, for God is love. 

3 When mystery clouds my darkened path, 
I'll check my dread, my doubts reprove ; 
In this my soul sweet comfort hath, 
That God is love, that God is love. 

4 Yes, God is love ; — a thought like this, 
Can every gloomy thought remove, 
And turn all tears, all woes, to bliss, 
For God is love, for God is love.

My Jesus, as thou wilt ! 

Oh ! may thy will be mine ; 
Into thy hand of love 

I would my all resign ; 
Through sorrow, or through joy, 

Conduct me as thine own, 
And help me still to say, 

My Lord, thy will be done ! 

2 My Jesus, as thou wilt ! 

Though seen through many a tear, 
Let not my star of hope 

Grow dim or disappear: 
Since thou on earth hast wept, 

And sorrowed oft alone, 
If I must weep with thee, 

My Lord, thy will be done ! 

3 My Jesus, as thou wilt ! 

All shall be well for me ; 
Each changing future scene 

I gladly trust with thee: 
Straight to my home above 

I travel calmly on, 
And sing, in life or death, 

My Lord, thy will be done ! 

A V I Job 2.3 : 70. 

Thy way, not mine, O Lord, 

However dark it be ! 
Lead me by thine own hand ; 

Choose out the path for me. 
I dare not choose my lot : 

I would not, if I might ; 
Choose thou for me, my God, 

So shall I walk aright. 

2 The kingdom that I seek 

Is thine : so let the way 
That leads to it be thine, 

Else I must surely stray. 
Take thou my cup, and it 

With joy or sorrow fill, 
As best to thee may seem ; 

Choose thou my good and ill. 

3 Choose thou for me my friends, 

My sickness or my health ; 
Choose thou my cares for me, 

My poverty or wealth. 
Not mine, not mine the choice,. 

In things or great or small ; 
Be thou my Guide, my Strength, 

My Wisdom, and my All.

My times of sorrow and of joy,

My choicest comforts come from thee, 
And go at thy command. 

If thou shouldst take them all away, 

Yet would I not repine ; 
Before they were possessed by me, 

They were entirely thine. 

Nor would I drop a murmuring word, 
Though the whole world were gone, 

But seek enduring happiness, 
In thee, and thee alone. 

4.3 ^ Heb. /£ .• //. Edmeston. 

O thou whose mercy guides my way, 
Though now it seems severe, 

Forbid my unbelief to say 
There is no mercy here ! 

2 Oh ! may I, Lord, desire the pain 

That comes in kindness down, 
Far more than sweetest earthly gain, 
Succeeded by a frown. 

3 Then though thou bend my spirit low, 

Love only shall I see ; 
The gracious hand that strikes the blow 
Was wounded once for me.

The whispers of his love ; 
Sweet to look upward to the place 
Where Jesus pleads above ; — 

3 Sweet on his faithfulness to rest, 

Whose love can never end ; 
Sweet on his covenant of grace 
For all things to depend ; — 

4 Sweet, in the confidence of faith, 

To trust his firm decrees ; 
Sweet to lie passive in his hands, 
And know no will but his.

What must the fountain be, 
W T here saints and angels draw their bliss 
Immediately from thee !

On others may devotion's flame 
Be kindled here, and purely burn !

Dear Saviour, ever at my side, 

How loving thou must be, 
To leave thy home in heaven to guard 

A little child like me ! 
Thy beautiful and shining face 

I see not, though so near ; 
The sweetness of thy soft, low voice 

I am too deaf to hear. 

I cannot feel thee touch my hand 

With pressure light and mild, 
To check me, as my mother doth, 

While I am but a child ; 
But I have felt thee in my thoughts 

Fighting with sin for me ; 
And when my heart loves God, I know 

The sweetness is from thee. 

And when, dear Saviour ! I kneel down 

Morning and night to prayer, 
Something there is within my heart 

Which tells me thou art there ; 
Yes ! when I pray, thou prayest too — 

Thy prayer is all for me ; 
But when I sleep, thou sleepest not, 

But watchest patiently. 

Sect. 72 : 7. 


Remember thy Creator now, 
In these thy youthful days ; 

He will accept thine earliest vow, 
And listen to thy praise. 


2 Remember thy Creator now, 

Seek him while he is near ; 
For evil days will come, when thou 
Shalt find no comfort here. 

3 Remember thy Creator now ; 

His willing servant be : 
Then, when thy head in death shall bow, 
He will remember thee. 

4 Almighty God ! our hearts incline 

Thy heavenly voice to hear ; 
Let all our future days be thine, 
Devoted to thy fear.

This sinful heart of mine, 
And wash it clean in every part ; 

Make me a child of thine. 

My sins, though great, thou canst forgive, 

For thou hast died for me ; 
Amazing love ! help me, O God, 

Thine own dear child to be. 
For thou hast said, "Forbid them not: 

Let children come to me :"

I come thy child to be.

Turn thou their feet from folly's way ;

From age to age endure : 
The Angel of the covenant proves, 

And seals the blessings sure. 

Jesus the ancient faith confirms, 
To our great fathers given ; 

He takes young children to his arms, 
And calls them heirs of heaven. 

Oil!' God! — how faithful arc his ways! 

Hi- love endures tie- Bame ; 
Xor from tin- promise «-f his grace 

Blots out the children's name.

Zw/te 22 : /9. Watts. 

'T was on that dark, that doleful night, 
When powers of earth and hell arose 
Against the Son of God's delight, 
And friends betrayed him to his foes. 

Before the mournful scene began, 
He took thebread,and blessed, and brake; 
What love through all his actions ran ! 
What wondrous words-of grace he spake ! 

" This is my body, broke for sin ; 
Receive and eat the living food :" 
Then took the cup, and blessed the wine ; 
" 'T is the new covenant in my blood." 

" Do this," he cried, " till time shall end, 
In memory of your dying Friend ; 
Meet at my table, and record 
The love of your departed Lord." 

Jesus, thy feast we celebrate ; 
We. show thy death, we sing thy name, 
Till thou return, and we shall cat 
The marriage supper of the Lamb. 

John O : 55. Mrs. Alexander. 

O Jesus, bruised and wounded more 
Than bursted grape, or bread of wheat, 
The Life of life within our souls, 
The cup of our salvation sweet! 

We come to show thy dying hour, 
Thy streaming vein, thy broken flesh;' 
And still that blood is warm to save, 
And still thy fragrant wounds are fresh. 


O Heart, that with a double tide 
Of blood and water, maketh pure ! 
Flesh, once offered on the cross, 
The gift that makes our pardon sure ! 

Let nevermore our sinful souls 

The anguish of thy cross renew ; 

Nor forge again the cruel nails 

That pierced thy victim body through ! 

Come, Bread of heaven, to feed our souls, 
And with thee, Jesus enter in ! 
Come, Wine of God ! and as we drink, 
His precious blood wash out our sin ! 


/ Cor. // • 21. 


At thy command, our dearest Lord, 
Here we attend thy dying feast ; 
Thy blood, like wine, adorns thy board, 
And thine own flesh feeds every guest. 

2 Our faith adores thy bleeding love, 
And trusts for life in One that died ; 
We hope for heavenly crowns above 
From a Redeemer crucified. 

3 Let the vain world pronounce it shame, 
And fling their scandals on the cause ; 
We come to boast our Saviour's name, 
And make our triumphs in his cross. 

4 With joy we tell the scoffing age, 
He that was dead has left his tomb ; 
He lives above their utmost rage, 
And we arc waiting till He come.

Oh ! the sweet wonders of that cross 
Where my Redeemer loved and died ! 
Her noblest life my spirit draws 
From his dear wounds, and bleeding side.

In sounds to mortal ears unknown ; 
With angels join to praise the Lamb, 
And worship at his Father's throne.

Lord, I am thine, entirely thine, 
Purchased and 'saved by blood divine ! 
With full consent thine I would be, 
And own thy sovereign right in me. 

2 Grant one poor sinner more a place, 
Among the children of thy grace ; 
A wretched sinner, lost to God, 
But ransomed by Im maimers blood. 

3 Thine would I live, thine would I die, 
Be thine through all eternity ; 

The vow is passed beyond repeal; 
Now will I set the solemn seal. 

\ Here at that cross where flows the blood 
That bought my guilty soul for God ; 
Thee, my new Master, now I call, 
And consecrate to thee my all. 

5 Do thou assist a feeble worm, 
The great engagement to perform ; 
Thy grace can full assistance lend, 
And on that grace I dare depend. 

'Phil. / / 2?. 



My gracious Lord, I own thy right 
To every service I can pay, 
And call it my supreme delight 
To hear thy dictates and obey. 

2 What is my being, but for thee, 
Its sure support, its noblest end ? 
Thine ever-smiling face to see, 

x\nd serve the cause of such a Friend. 

3 I would not breathe for worldly joy, 
Or to increase my worldly good ; 
Nor future days nor powers employ 
To spread a sounding name abroad. 

4 'T is to my Saviour I would live, 
To him who for my ransom died ; 
Nor could the bowers of Eden give 
Such bliss as blossoms at his side. 

5 His work my hoary age shall bless, 
AVhen youthful vigor is no more ; 
And my last hour of life confess 
His dying love, his saving power. 

4.72 / *W. / it 9, Anon. 

We pray thee, wounded Lamb of God, 
Cleanse us in thy atoning blood ; 
Grant us by faith to view thy cross, 
Then life or death is gain to us. 

2 Take our poor hearts, and let them be 
Forever closed to all but thee ; 
Seal thou our breasts, and let us wear 
That pledge of love forever there.

Yet they all could not extinguish 
Love's eternal, burning flame. 

2 Now redemption is completed, 

Full salvation is procured ; 
Death and Satan are defeated, 

By the sufferings he endured. 
Now the gracious Mediator 

Risen to the courts of bliss, 
Claims for me, a sinful creature, 

Pardon, righteousness, and peace ! 

3 Sure such infinite affection 

Lays the highest claims to mine ; 
All my powers, without exception, 

Should in fervent praises join. 
Jesus, fit me for thy service ; 

Form me for thyself alone; 
I am thy most costly purchase, — 

Take possession of thine own. 

4~99 / Cor. .5: 7. Bakewell, 

Paschal Lamb, by God appointed, 

All our sins on thee were laid ; 
By almighty love anointed, 

Thou hast full atonement made ; 
All thy people arc forgiven, 

Through the virtue of thy blood ; 
Opened is the gate of heaven ; 

Peace is made 'twixt man and God.

Entirely to thy hands.

With ever-growing zeal ;- , 
If millions tempt us Christ to leave, 
Oh, let them ne'er prevail !

Our souls to thee, our Head ; 
Shall form in us thine image bright, 
And teach, thy paths to tread.

From these abodes of clay ; 
But love, shall keep us near thy side,

Why should we doubt or fear?

Not all the blood of beasts, 

On Jewish altars slain, 
Could give the guilty conscience peace, 

Or wash away the stain. 

2 But Christ, the heavenly Lamb, 

Takes all our sins away — 
A sacrifice of nobler name, 
And richer blood than they. 

3 My faith would lay her hand 

On that dear head of thine, 
While like a penitent I stand, 
And there confess my sin. 

4 My soul looks back to see 

The burdens thou didst bear 
When hanging on the cursed tree, 
And hopes her guilt was there. 

5 Believing, we rejoice 

To see the curse remove ; 
We bless the Lamb with cheerful voice, 
And sing his bleeding love.

Isa. 9 : 2. 


Though now the nations sit beneath 
The darkness of o'erspreading death, 
God will arise with light divine, 
On Zion's holy towers to shine. 

2 That light shall shine on distant lands, 
And wandering tribes, in joyful bands, 
Shall come thy glory, Lord, to see, 
And in thy courts to worship thee. 

3 O light of Zion, now arise ! 

Let the glad morning bless our eyes ! 
Ye nations, catch the kindling ray, 
And hail the splendors of the day. 

COQ &I.79, Watts. 

Great God, whose universal sway 
The known and unknown worlds obey, 
Now give the kingdom to thy Son, 
Extend his power, exalt his throne. 

2 Thy sceptre well becomes his hands, 
All heaven submits to his commands ; 
His justice shall avenge the poor, 
And pride and rage prevail no more. 

3 With power he vindicates the just, 
And treads the oppressor in the dust ; - 
His worship and his fear shall last, 
Till hours, and years, and time be past. 

4 The heathen lands that lie beneath 
The shades of overspreading death, 

Revive at his first dawning light, 
And deserts blossom at the sight. 

5 The saints shall flourish in his days, 
Dressed in the robes of joy and praise ; 
Peace, like a river from his throne, 
Shall flow to nations yet unknown. 

Mark 6 : 31. 



Look from thy sphere of endless day, 
O God of mercy and of might ! 
In pity look on those who stray, 
Benighted, in this land of light. 

2 In peopled vale, in lonely glen, 

In crowded mart, by stream or sea, 

How many of the sons of men 

Hear not the message sent from thee ! 

3 Send forth thy heralds, Lord, to call 
The thoughtless young, the hardened old, 
A scattered, homeless flock, till all 

Be gathered to thy peaceful fold. 

4 Send them thy mighty word to speak, 
Till faith shall dawn, and doubt depart, 
To awe the bold, to stay the weak, 
And bind and heal the broken heart. 

5 Then all these wastes, a drear} r scene, 
That make us sadden as Ave gaze, 
Shall grow with living waters green, 
And lift to heaven the voice of praise.

Present a harvest to the sight.

The joy the gospel will bestow ; 
The exiled captive, to receive

To set the captive free, 

To take away transgression, 
And rule in equity. 

He comes with succor speedy, 

To those who suffer wrong ; 
To help the poor and needy, 

And bid the weak be strong; 
To give them songs for sighing, 

Their darkness turn to light, 
Whose souls condemned and dying, 

Were precious in his sight. 

He shall come down, like showers 

Upon the fruitful earth, 
And love, and joy, like flowers, 

Spring in his path to birth : 
Before him on the mountains, 

Shall peace, the herald, go : 
And righteousness, in fountains, 

From hill to valley flow. 

For him shall prayer unceasing 

And daily vows ascend ; 
His kingdom still increasing, — 

A kingdom without end : 
The tide of time shall never 

His covenant remove ; 
nis name shall stand forever, — 

That name to us is — Love.

Saviour, visit thy plantation ! 

Grant us, Lord, a gracious rain : 
All will come to desolation, 

Unless thou return again. 
Keep no longer at a distance, 

Shine upon us from on high, 
Lest, for want of thine assistance, 

Every plant should droop and die. 

2 Once, .0 Lord, thy garden flourished ; 

Every part looked gay and green ; 
Then thy word our spirits nourished : 

Happy seasons we have seen. 
But a drought has since succeeded, 

And a sad decline we see: 
Lord, thy help is greatly needed : 

Help can only come from thee. 

3 Let our mutual love be fervent : 

Make us prevalent in prayer ; 
Let each one esteemed thy servant 

Shun the world's bewitching snare. 
Break the tempter's fatal power, 

Turn the stony heart to flesh, 
And begin from this good hour 

To revive thy work afresh. 

Z7A. Ts.87. Newton. 

Glorious things of thee are spoken, 

Zion ! city of our God ! 
He whose word cannot be broken, 

Formed thee for his own abode : 
On the Rock of Ages founded — 

What can shake thy sure repose ? 
With salvation's walls surrounded, 

Thou may'st smile at all thy foes. 

2 See, the streams of living waters, 

Springing from eternal love, 
Well supply thy sons and daughters, 

And all fear of want remove : 
Who can faint, while such a river 

Ever flows their thirst t' assuage ? 
Grace, which, like the Lord, the giver, 

Never fails from age to age. 

3 Round each habitation hovering, 

See the cloud and fire appear ! 
For a glory and a covering, 

Showing that the Lord is near : 
He who gives them daily manna, 

He who listens when they cry, — 
Let him hear the loud hosanna, 

Rising to his throne on high.

Soon repenting and returning, 
All thy solitude shall close. 

Though benighted and forsaken, 

Though afflicted and distressed ; 
His almighty arm shall waken ; 

Zion's King shall give thee rest : 
Cease thy sadness, unbelieving;

Dear Desire of every nation, 

Joy of every longing heart. 

Born, thy people to deliver ; 

Born a child, and yet a King ; 
Born to reign in us forever, 

Now thy precious kingdom bring: 
By thine own eternal Spirit, 

Rule in all our hearts alone ; 
By thine all-sufficient merit,

Rich reward he offers free ;

If you cannot preach like Paul, 

You can tell the love of Jesus, 
You can say he died for all. 

While the souls of men are dying, 

And the Master calls for you, 
Let none hear you idly saying, 

" There is nothing I can do !" 
Gladly take the task he gives you, 

Let his work your pleasure be ; 
Answer quickly when he calleth, 

" Here am I, O Lord, send me."

547 JP *' f2T : 2% Watts. 

Why should we start, and fear to die ? 
What timorous worms we mortals are ! 
Death is the gate of endless joy, 
And yet we dread to enter there. 

2 The pains, the groans, the dying strife 
Fright our approaching souls away ; 
We still shrink back again to life, 
Fond of our prison and our clay. 

3 Oh, if my Lord would come and meet, 
My soul should stretch her wings in haste, 
Fly fearless through death's iron gate, 
Nor feel the terrors as she passed ! 

4 Jesus can make a dying bed 
Feel soft as downy pillows are, 

While on his breast 1 lean my head, 
And breathe my life out sweetly there ! 


/ Thess. U : /4. Mrs. Mackay. 

Asleep in Jesus ! blessed sleep ! 
From which none ever wake to weep ; 
A calm and undisturbed repose, 
Unbroken by the last of foes. 

Asleep in Jesus ! oh, how sweet 

To be for such a slumber meet ! 

With holy confidence to sing 

That death hath lost its venomed sting ! 

Asleep in Jesus ! peaceful rest ! 
Whose waking is supremely blest; 
No fear — no woe, shall dim the hour 
That manifests the Saviour's power. 

4 Asleep in Jesus ! oh, for me 
May such a blissful refuge be : 
Securely shall my ashes lie, 

And wait the summons from on high. 

5 Asleep in Jesus ! far from thee 

Thy kindred and their graves may be : ■ 
But thine is still a blessed sleep 
From which none ever wake to weep. 

CzLQ 2tev. /4 •• /<?• Barbauld. 

How blest the righteous when he dies ! 
When sinks a weary soul to rest ! 
How mildly beam the closing eyes ! 
How gently heaves the expiring breast ! 

2 So fades a summer cloud away ; 

So sinks the gale when storms arc o'er ; 
So gently shuts the eye of day ; 
So dies a wave along the shore. 

3 A holy quiet reigns around, 

A calm which life nor death destroys; 
And naught disturbs that peace profound 
Which his unfettered soul enjoys. 

4 Farewell, conflicting hopes and fears, 
Where lights and shades alternate dwell; 
How bright the unchanging morn appears! 

Farewell, inconstant world, farewell ! 

5 Life's labor done, as sinks the clay, 
Light from its load the spirit flies, 
While heaven and earth combine to say, 
" How blest the righteous when he dies !"

Why do we mourn departing friends, 
Or shake at death's alarms ? 

'T is but the voice that Jesus sends, 
To call them to his arms. 

2 Are we not tending upward, too, 

As fast as time can move ? 
Nor would we wish the hours more slow, 
To keep us from our love. 

3 Why should we tremble to convey 

Their bodies to the tomb? 
There the dear flesh of Jesus lay, 
And scattered all the gloom.

And softened every bed ; 
Where should the dying members rest, 
But with the dying Head ? 

5 Thence he arose, ascending high, 

And showed our feet the way ; 
Up to the Lord we, too, shall fly, 
At the great rising day.

And bid our kindred rise ; 
Awake ! ye nations underground ;

Great God, what do I see and hear ! 

The end of things created ! 
The Judge of man I see appear, 

On clouds of glory seated : 
The trumpet sounds ; the graves restore 
The dead which they contained before ; 

Prepare, my soul, to meet him. 

2 The dead in Christ shall first arise, 

At the last trumpet's sounding, 
Caught up to meet him in the skies, 

With joy their Lord surrounding; 
No gloomy fears their souls dismay, 
His presence sheds eternal day 

On those prepared to meet him. 

3 But sinners, filled with guilty fears, 

Behold his wrath prevailing ; 
For they shall rise, and find their tears 

And sighs are unavailing : 
The day of grace is past and gone ; 
Trembling they stand before the throne, 

All unprepared to meet him.

When my last hour is close at hand, 

My last sad journey taken, 
Do thou, Lord Jesus ! by me stand ; 

Let me not be forsaken : 
O Lord ! my spirit I resign 
Into thy loving hands divine ; 

'T is safe within thy keeping. 

2 Countless as sands upon the shore, 

My sins may then appall me ; 
Yet, though my conscience vex me sore, 

Despair shall not enthrall me ; 
For as I draw my latest breath, 
I'll think, Lord Christ ! upon thy death, 

And there find consolation. 

3 I shall not in the grave remain, 

Since thou death's bonds hast severed : 
By hope with thee to rise again 

From fear of death delivered, 
I'll come to thee, where'er thou art, 
Live with thee, from thee never part ; 

Therefore I die in rapture. 

4 And so to Jesus Christ I'll go, 

My longing arms extending ; 
So fall asleep, in slumber deep,

John 79 : 37. 


See the eternal Judge descending ! 

View him seated on his throne ! 
Now, poor sinner, now lamenting, 

Stand and hear thine awful doom ; 
Trumpets call thee, 

Stand and hear thine awful doom ! 

Hear the cries he now is venting, 
Filled with dread of fiercer pain ; 

While in anguish thus lamenting 
That he ne'er was born again — 

Greatly mourning 
That he ne'er was born again. 

" Yonder sits my slighted Saviour, 
With the marks of dying love ; 

Oh, that I had sought his favor 
When I felt his Spirit move — 

Golden moments, 
When I felt his Spirit move !" 

" Come, ye blessed of my Father ! 

Enter into life and joy ; 
Banish all your fears and sorrows ; 

Endless praise be your employ ; 
Hallelujah !— 

Welcome, welcome to the skies !"

Lo ! he comcth, — countless trumpets 
AVake to life the slumbering dead ; 

'Mid ten thousand saints and angels, 
See their great exalted Ilea- 1 : 

Hallelujah — 
Welcome, welcome, Son of God ! 

Full of joyful expectation, 

Saints behold the Judge appear : 

Truth and justice go before him — 
Now the joyful sentence hear ; 

Hallelujah !— 
Welcome, welcome, Judge divine ! 

Lo ! he comes with clouds descending, 
Once for favored sinners slain ! 

Thousand thousand saints attending, 
Swell the triumph of his train ! 

Hallelujah ! 
Jesus comes, and comes to reign. 

2 Every eye shall now behold him, 

Robed in dreadful majesty ! 
Those who set at naught and sold him, 
Pierced and nailed him to the tree, 

Deeply wailing, 
Shall the true Messiah see ! 

3 Lo ! the last long separation, 

As the cleaving crowds divide, 
And one dread adjudication 
Sends each soul to either side ! 

Lord of mercy ! 
How shall I that day abide ? 

4 Yea, Amen ! let all adore thee, 

High on thine eternal throne ! 
Saviour, take the power and glory ; 
Make thy righteous sentence known I 

Men and angels 
Kneel and bow to thee alone!

There is an hour of peaceful rest, 

To mourning wanderers given ; 

There is a joy for souls distressed, 

A balm for every wounded breast : 

'T is found above — in heaven. 

There is a home for weary souls, 

By sin and sorrow driven, — 
When tossed on life's tempestuous shoals, 
Where storms arise, and ocean rolls, 
And all is drear — but heaven. 

There faith lifts up her cheerful eye 

To brighter prospects given ; 
And views the tempest passing by, 
The evening shadows quickly fly, 
And all serene — in heaven. 

There fragrant flowers immortal bloom, 
And joys supreme are given ; 

There rays divine disperse the gloom ; 

Beyond the confines of the tomb 
Appears the dawn of heaven !

Why should I shrink at pain and woe ? 

Or feel, at death, dismay ? 
I 've Canaan's goodly land in view, 

And realms of endless day. 

Apostles, martyrs, prophets there, 
Around my Saviour stand ! 

And soon my friends in Christ below, 
Will join the glorious band.

Then shall my labors have an end,

They'll rise to joyful light.

Press onward to the prize ; 

Soon our Saviour will return 
Triumphant in the shies ! 

Yet a season, and you know 

Happy entrance will be given ;

And earth exchanged for heaven.

Enclosed in death's cold arms.

Secure in Jesus' love.

More than conquerors they stand.

And forever from their eyes 

God shall wipe away the tears.

Dwell the raptured saints above ; 
Far beyond our feeble sight, 

Happy in Immanuel's love: 
Pilgrims in this vale of tears, 

Once they knew, like us below, 
Gloomy doubts, distressing fears, 

Torturing pain and heavy woe.

Passed this scene of toil and pain, 
They shall feel distress no more — 

Never, never weep again :

Hark, their songs melodious rise, 

Songs of praise to Jesus' love !

There no angry tempest blows: 
Every tear is wiped away,

Jerusalem, the glorious ! 
The glory of the elect, —

That eager hearts expect !

Ev'n here thy walls discern ; 

To thee my thoughts are kindled,

And love thee evermore !

Shall I e'er see thy face ? 
O sweet and blessed Country ! 

Shall I e'er win thy grace ? — 
Exult, O dust and ashes ! 

The Lord shall be thy part ; 
His only, his forever, 

Thou shalt be, and thou art ! 


Matt; 25 : 6. 


Rejoice, rejoice, believers ! 

And let your lights appear ; 
The shades of eve are thickening, 

And darker nio-ht is near ; 

P#^f fff 

The Bridegroom is advancing ; 

Each hour he draws more nigh ; 
Up ! watch and pray, nor slumber; 

At midnight comes the cry. 

2 See that your lamps are burning, 

Your vessels filled with oil ; 
Wait calmly your deliverance 

From earthly pain and toil. 
The watchers on the mountains 

Proclaim the Bridegroom near, 
Go, meet him, as he cometh, 

With hallelujahs clear. 

3 The saints, who here in patience 

Their cross and sufferings bore, 
With him shall reign forever, 

When sorrow is no more : 
Around the throne of glory 

The Lamb shall they behold, 
Adoring cast before him 

Their diadems of gold. 

4 Our hope and expectation, 

O Jesus, now appear ! 
Ari?e, thou Sun so looked-for, 

O'er this benighted sphere ! 
With hearts and hands uplifted, 

We plead, O Lord, to see 
The day of our redemption, 

And ever be with thee. 




Jerusalem the gold 

With milk and honey blest, 
Beneath thy contemplation 

Sink heart and voice opprest. 
I know not, oh, I know not 

What joys await ns there, 
What radiancy of glory, 

What bliss beyond compare. 
O sweet and blessed Country, 

The home of God's elect! 
O sweet and blessed Country, 

That eager hearts expect ! 
. in mercy bring us, 

To that dear land of rest; 
Who art, with God the Father, 

And Spirit, ever blest. 


3iev. 2f : 10. 


For thee, O dear, dear Country ! 

Mine eyes their vigils keep : 
For very love, beholding 

Thy happy name, they weep ; — 
O one, O only mansion ! 

< > Para Use of joy ! 
Where tears are ever banished, 

A:id bliss hath no alloy. 

Thy ageless walls are bonded 

With amethyst unpriced ; 
The saints build up the fabric, 

The corner-stone is Christ! 
Upon the Rock of Ages 

They raise thy holy tower ; 
Thine is the victor's laurel, 

And thine the golden dower. 

They stand, those halls of Zion, 

Conjubilant witli song; 
And bright with many an angel, 

With many a martyr-throng ; 
The Prince is ever in them, 

The light is aye serene, 
The pastures of the blessed 

Are decked in glorious sheen. 

There is the throne of David ; 

And there, from toil released, 
The shout of them that triumph, 

The song of them that feast ; 
And they, beneath their Leader, 

Who conquered in the fight, 
Forever and forever 

Are clad in robes of white !

COO Heb.2:1l. 

There is a land immortal, 

The beautiful of lands ; 
Beside its ancient portal 

A silent sentry stands ; 
He only can undo it, 

And open wide the door ; 
And mortals who pass through it, 

Are mortal nevermore. 

2 Though dark and drear the passage 

That leadeth to the gate, 
Yet grace comes with the message, 

To souls that watch and wait ; 
And at the time appointed 

A messenger comes down, 
And leads the Lord's anointed 

From cross to glory's crown. 

3 Their sighs are lost in singing, 

They 're blessed in their tears ; 
Their journey heavenward winging, 

They leave on earth their fears : 
Death like an angel seemeth ; 

" We welcome thee," they cry ; 
Their face with glory beameth — 

'T is life for them to die ! 

1 John 2 : 17. 


Brief life is here our portion ; 

Brief sorrow, short-lived care ; 
The life, that knows no ending, 

The tearless life, is there : 
Oh, happy retribution ! 

Short toil, eternal rest ; 
For mortals, and for sinners, 

A mansion with the blest ! 

2 And there is David's fountain, 

And life in fullest glow ; 
And there the light is golden, 

And milk and honey flow ; 
The light, that hath no evening, 

The health, that hath no sore, 
The life, that hath no ending, 

But lasteth evermore. 

3 There Jesus shall embrace us, 

There Jesus be embraced, — 
That spirit's food and sunshine, 

Whence earthly love is chased : 
Yes ! God, my King and Portion, 

In fullness of his grace, 
We then shall see for ever, 

And worship face to face.

2 There is peace in the valley of blessing 

so sweet, 
And plenty the land doth impart ; 
There is rest for the weary-worn travel- 
er's feet, 
And joy for the sorrowing heart. Cho. 

3 There is love in the valley of blessing 

so sweet, 
Sueli as none but the blood-washed

When heaven comes down redeemed 

spirits to greet, 
And Christ sets his covenant seal. Cho. 

4 There 's a song in the valley of blessing, 
so sweet 
That angels would fain join the 
strain — 
As, with rapturous praises, we bow at 
his feet, 
Crying, " Worthy the Lamb that was

Cant./ : 78. 



O thou, in whose presence my soul takes 
On whom in affliction I call, 
My comfort by day, and my song in 
the night, 
My hope, my salvation, my all ! 
Where dost thou, at noon-tide, resort 
with thy sheep, 
To feed them in pastures of love ? 
Say, why in the valley of death should 
I weep, 
Or alone in this wilderness rove ? 

2 Oh, why should I wander an alien from 
Or cry in the desert for bread \ 
Thy foes will rejoice when my sorrows 
they see, 
And smile at the tears 1 have shed. 
Pear Shepherd 1 I hear, and will follow 
thy eall ; 
I know the sweet sound of thy voice; 
Restore and defend me, for thou art my 
And in thee I will ever rejoice, [all,

CQC A Marriage Hymn. Berridge. 

Since Jesus freely did appear 

To grace a marriage feast, 
Dear Lord; we ask thy presence here, . 

To make a wedding guest. 

2 Upon the bridal pair look down, 
Who now have plighted hands ; 
Their union with thy favor crown, 
And bless the nuptial bands. 

3 Oh, may each soul assembled here, v 
Be married, Lord, to thee ! 
Clad in thy robes, made white and fair, 
To spend eternity ! 


Fast. Steele. 

See, gracious God, before thy throne, 
Thy mourning people bend ! 

'T is on thy sovereign grace alone, 
Our humble hopes depend. 

2 Alarming judgments from thy hand, 

Thy dreadful power display ; 
Yet mercy spares this guilty land, 
And yet we live to pray. 

3 Oh, bid us turn, Almighty Lord, 

By thy resistless grace ; 
Then shall our hearts obey thy word, 
And humbly seek thy face. 

CQy Seamen. Anon. 

We come, O Lord, before thy throne, 

And, with united plea, 
We meet and pray for those who roam 

Far off upon the sea. 

2 Oh, may the Holy Spirit bow 

The sailor's heart to thee, 
Till tears of deep repentance flow, 
Like rain-drops in the sea ! 

3 Then may a Saviour's dying love 

Pour peace into his breast, 
And waft him to the port above 
Of everlasting rest.

And when they trod the -win - try strand, With prayer and psalm they worshiped thee 












3 With grateful hearts the past we own ; 
The future — all to us unknown — 

We to thy guardian care commit, 
And peaceful leave before thy feet. 

4 In scenes exalted or depressed, 

Be thou our joy, and thou our rest ; 
Thy goodness all our hopes shall raise, 
Adored, through all our changing days. 

5 When death shall close our earthly songs, 
And seal, in silence, mortal tongues, 
Our Helper, God, in whom we trust, 
Shall keep our souls and guard our dust. 

OOO Seamen. Burgess. 

While o'er the deep thy servants sail, 
Scud thou, O Lord, the prosperous gale ; 
And on their hearts where'er they go, 
Oh, let thy heavenly breezes blow ! 

2 If on the morning's wings they fly, 
They will not pass beyond thine eye; 
The wanderer's prayer thou bend'st to 

And faith exults to know thee near. 

3 When tempests rock the groaning bark, 

Oh, hide tnem safe in Jesus' ark ! 
When in the tempting port they ride, 
Oh, keep them safe at Jesus' side ! 

4 If life's wide ocean smile or roar, 

Still guide them to the heavenly shore; 
And grant their dust in Christ may sleep, 
Abroad, at home, or in the deep. 




O God, beneath thy guiding hand, 
Our exiled fathers crossed the sea ; 
And when they trod the wintry strand, 
With prayer and psalm they worshiped 

2 Thou heard'st, well-pleased, the song, 

the prayer ; 
Thy blessing came ; and still its power 
Shall onward through all ages bear 
The memory' of that holy hour. 

3 Laws, freedom, truth, and faith in God 
Came with those exiles o'er the waves ; 
And where their pilgrim feet have trod, 
The God they trusted guards their graves. 


4 And here thy name, O God of love, 
Their children's children shall adore, 
Till these eternal hills remove, 

And spring adorns the earth no more. 

New Year. 



Great God, we sing that mighty hand, 
By which supported still we stand : 
The opening year thy mercy shows ; 
Let mercy crown it till it close. 

2 By day, by night — at home, abroad, 
Still we are guarded by our God ; 
By his incessant bounty fed, 
By his unerring counsel led.

Speedily the mark to find ; 
As the lightning from the skies

Upward, Lord, our spirits raise, 

All below is but a dream.

Pardon of our sins renew ; 
Teach us henceforth how to live, 

With eternity in view : 
Bless thy word to old and young ; 

Fill us with a Saviour's love ; - 
When our life's short race is run, 

May we dwell with thee above.

Come, ye thankful people, come, 
Raise the song of Harvest Home ! 
All is safely gathered in, 
Ere the winter storms begin : 

God our Maker doth provide 
For our wants to be supplied : 
Come to God's own temple, come, 
Raise the song of Harvest Home ! 

We ourselves are God's own field, 
Fruit unto his praise to yield : 
Wheat and tares together sown, 
Unto joy or sorrow grown : 
First the blade, and then the ear, 
Then the full corn shall appear : 
Grant, O Harvest-Lord, that we 
Wholesome grain and pure may be ! 

For the Lord our God shall come, 
And shall take his harvest home : 
From his field shall in that day- 
All offences purge away : 
Give his angels charge at last 
In the fire the tares to cast : 
But the fruitful ears to store 
In his garner evermore. 

4 Then, thou Church Triumphant, come, 
Raise the song of Harvest Home ! 
All are safely gathered in, 
Free from sorrow, free from sin : 
There, forever purified, 
In God's garner to abide : 
Come, ten thousand angels, come, 
Raise the glorious Harvest Home !

From Rev. Thos. S. Hastings, D.D., Pastor of the 
West Frcs. Church, New York City, April it,, 1873. 
,k I have examined the Songs for the Sanctuary very 
carefully, and the more I have studied and used it, the 
more thoroughly I am persuaded that, on the whole, it 
is decidedly the best collection now before the public. 
The Church I serve, at my suggestion, and the cordial 
recommendation of the session, has recently adopted it 
for our services, giving it a marked and decided prefer- 
ence over all similar books now issued." 

From Rev. Howard Crosby, D.D., Chancellor of the 

University 0/ New York, and Pastor 0/ the Fourth 

Avenue Presbyterian Church, Nov. 26, 1872. 

"The Fourth Avenue Presbyterian Church uses the 
Songs for the Sanctuary in both Church building and 
lecture-room. We selected the book after very careful 
examination of others, and are perfectly satisfied with 
our choice." 

From Rev. Robert R. Booth, D.D., University Place 
Presbyterian Church, New York, Nov. 1872. 
" We have used the Songs for the Sanctuary since 
1866, first in the old Mercer Street Church, and now in 
the University Place Church. I can conscientiously 
say that it grows upon our affections the longer we use 
it. It holds its place by its own mem, and not by any 
effort or favor of mine. I learn that it has just been 
adopted also by our two mission flocks, and is awaken- 
ing new interest in the service of praise among them. 
In my judgment, it is the best book of the kind in exist- 

From Rev. R. S. Storrs, D.D., Pastor of the Church 
of the Pilgrims, Brooklyn, N. Y. 
" It is not necessary for me to compare Songs for the 
Sanctuary with other books which aim to fulfill the 
same office, any further than to say that on the whole 
I preferred it at the outset to any other which I have 
seen, and that this preference has only become stronger, 
and has seemed to be more amply justified, the longer 
1 have continued to use it." 

From Prof. Geo. E. Day, Yale College. 
" This book appears to me superior to any used in 
the churches." 

From Rev. Wm. Ives Budington, D.D., Clinton Ave. 

Congregational Church, Brooklyn, N. Y., May 1873. 

* * " Since January last our church have employed 
on the Lord's Day the new and improved edition to- 
gether -with the Psalter. Our expectations have been 
more than realized. The hymns constitute a choice 
Selection ; judgment and good taste have been evinced 
in the musical adaptation. The Chants in the new edi- 
tion are pointed for use, and the Psalter consists of a 
judicious selection from the Psalms and the prophecies 
of Isaiah, well arranged for responsive worship by 
minister and people." 

From Rev. A. H. Clapp, D.D., Secretary American 
Home Missionary Society, N. Y. y March 19, 1873. 
" Taking Hymns and Tunes together, it is by far the 
best book out yet, in my judgment, and in that of the 
ministers I hear sneak of it.'" 

From Rev. W. Henry McGifferd, Parkersburgh, 
West Virginia, April 15, 1873. 

" I have thoroughly examined the new edition of 
' Songs for the Sanctuary,' and I have no hesitation in 
pronouncing it, in my judgment, not only a great im- 
provement upon all former editions, but incomparably 
the best Hymn and Tune Book that has ez'er been pub- 
lished. Every one is delighted with it, and our only 
wonder is, not that 2000 churches have adopted it, but 
that any church can consent to do without it. 

44 The Psalter is a very great improvement, and if 
universally introduced would add much to the beauty 
and interest of our Sabbath services." 

From Rev. John N. Waddell, Chancellor University 
of Mississippi, Oxford, Miss., March 24, 1873. 

" We are very much pleased with it, indeed. We 
have seldom examined a work more satisfactory in all 

From Rev. P. M. Bartlett, D.D., President Mary- 
ville College, East Tenn., April 5, 1873. 

M We have sung some of the new tunes. They are 
very fine. * * * Thus far I pronounce the music 
superior to that in the l Ch. Hymn Book.' This last 
is a good book, but I am inclined to think a musician 
will prefer Dr. Robinson's Selection." 

From Rev. Myron A. Munson, Moriah, New York^ 
April 22, 1873. 

M I have examined ' the Songs for the Sanctuary' 
with abounding gratification. Its lyrics are lyrical, and 
its music musical. 

44 The book which has heretofore held the first place 
in my esteem has now subsided to the second place. 
I am delighted with the music of Dr. Robinson's book." 

From Rev. P. S. Boyd, Amesbury, Mass., Feb. 15, 1873. 

u I regard it as the most perfect book for the Service - 
of Song with which I am acquainted, and I have ex- 
amined a large number of its rivals." 
From Rev. Thos. S. Robie, New Ipswich, New Hamp- 
shire (whose church has just adopted the edition 
containing the Psalter), Feb'y 24, 1873. 
44 There is a good deal in a name. And while the 
word k Sanctuary' has a richness of meaning which 
belongs to no other Hymn-book, the term ' Songs 
for the Sanctuary' has a fragrance and a melody in it 
appropriate to its sweet mission as a messenger of 
music in the House of God." 

From Rev. A. L. Chapin, D.D., President Beloit Col- 
lege, Wis., March 1, 1873. 
11 The 4 Chapel Songs' seem admirably suited to the 
use of conference and prayer meetings, especially 
where 'the Songs for the Sanctuary' is used for con- 
gregational singing in the larger place of worship. It 
is a great advantage to preserve the same association 
of hymns and tunes in both the social meetings and the 
more public services of the same church." 
From Rev. Wm. W. Holloway, Battle Creek, Mich., 
Feb'y 26, 1873. 
* * * " Gives entire satisfaction.— For myself I 
can speak in the highest terms of my admiration of the 
book '* 




From the Congregationalist, Boston, Dec. 12, 1872. 

41 If there is on the whole at the present time a more 
popular book of hymns and music for congregational 
singing in the house of God than Songs for the Sanc- 
tuary, we have to be informed of it, and by general ac- 
knowledgment its popularity is justly deserved. There 
may be other books which can contest the palm with it 
in special features, but in other points they are vulner- 
able as it is not; to that its mean of excellence maybe 
left where the public judgment seems to be putting it- 
above that of any of its competitors. Nor is it difficult 
to account for the remarkable success to which a new 
edition, after the printing of over 200,000 copies of the 
first, is a striking testimonial. Its variety and richness 
as a collection of hymns, the almost uniform singable- 
ness of its tunes, its admirable arrangement of both 
hymns and tunes, its typographical beauty, and the 
convenience and shapeliness of its form, were sure to 
win the favor of the church-going community from the 
start. We know of no book of the kind which, edited 
by so severe and exacting a taste, yet so strongly ap- 
peals to the popular heart on every side. There are 
some books which have more hymns ; others which 
have fewer truly classical tunes, and more that are of 
the camp-meeting type ; others which show a greater 
array of indices and collateral matter ; others which are 
smaller and less costly; but none that we know of 
which give greater satisfaction to the user. k Doubtless 
man could make a better' hymn and tune book, but 
1 doubtless he never has,' and when he does we shall be 
glad to see it. The Songs for the Sanctuary is now in 
use in nearly 2,000 churches of different denominations, 
and this new edition, from a complete new set of elec- 
trotype plates, is certain to carry it into many congre- 
gations more. No church about to introduce a new 
singing-book for congregational use can afford to de- 
cide on the change without a careful examination of 
the claims of this particular candidate.'" 

From the Advance (Cong.), Chicago, Nov. 21, 1S72. 
" If there is a better book of praise for our churches, 
we have not seen it." 

From the Interior (Presb.), Chicago, Nov. 21, 1872. 
11 It is a delightful companion of both public and pri- 
vate worship, set to sweet, tender, heart music. 1 ' * * 
Dec. 5, 1872 : " The new edition is very beautiful." 

From the Independent (Cong.), Dec. 5, 1S72. 
" It is hardly necessary to say a word in commenda- 
tion of this excellent collection. * * * The chief 
fault that we can find in it, however, is that it is too 
big. Yet after long and familiar acquaintance with it, 
we should find it hard to pick out many hymns and 
tunes with which we should want to part. There is prosaic theological rhyme in it than in most books 
of its class. Nearly all the hymns have some poetry in 
them, and nearly all the tunes are musical. On the 
whole, we know of no hymn and tunc book which we 
like so well." 

From the N Y Observer {Presb.) Nov. Ik, 1872. 
"There is nothing so successful as success. And 
there is hardly a better test of merit of hymns or tunes, 
and perhaps we may say of hymns and tunes, than the 
approval of the Church. A song sings itself into the 
heart of the Christian public and becomes immortal as 
the soul. It is not altogether so with tunes, but in a 
measure it is true of them. Old hymns and old tunes 
that ring in the memories and devotions of the people 
are good hymns and good tunes. The songs compiled 
by Rev. Dr. Robinson, with tunes, and bearing the 
name of Songs for the Sanctuary, have had the impress 
of success stamped upon them in a most remarkable 
manner, showing that they meet the wants of the peo- 
ple and answer the great end of a hymn-book for di- 
vine worship. We do not know the number of Chris- 
tian congregations that now use them, but we v have 
reason to believe that more at this moment sing from 
them every Sabbath than from any other one book. Of 
the peculiar merits of the book that has commanded 
this wide popularity, we are not critically competent to 
speak. It has made its way without ecclesiastical 
power into thousands of places, and will continue to 
hold its own, being a hymn-book in which all who love 
Jerusalem above their chief joy will find songs and 
notes l to bear their spirits to the skies.' " 

From the Evangelist (Presb.), N. Y, Nov. Ik, 1872. 

11 A. S. Barnes & Co. have just issued a new edition 
of Dr. Robinson's Songs for the Sanctuary, the most 
popular book of hymns and tunes ever published in 
this country. Its success has been quite marvellous, 
and all the more so that it has not been obtained by 
any tricks of popularity, such as attempts to manufac- 
ture public opinion, but simply by its own merits. 

* * * Any further notice is anticipated by Dr. Cuy- 
ler, in another column, who gives his hearty tribute to 
the merits and the success of this admirable collec- 
tion." , 

" A copy of this new issue, on fresh electrotype 
plates and fair paper, now lies before me. 

" Although this hymn-book seemed well-nigh perfect 
before, yet several improvements have been made. 

* * * Brother Robinson is to be congratulated on 
the splendid success of a hymnologic collection which 
is already used in two thousand churches, and of which 
nearly a quarter of a million copies have been circu- 
lated. To him the whole company of lovers of sacred 
song owe a debt of honest gratitude for adapting many 
very dear hymns to eligible tunes."— Bev. T. L. Cut- 
ler, D.D , in'N. Y. Evangelist, Nov. Ik, 1872. 

From The O. S. Presbyterian, St. Louis, Nov 20, 1872. 

" This is a collection of the standard old hymns and 
oil tunes, and of the choicest new hymns and new 
tunes. It has stood the lest of trial. * * * The de- 
mand for it is increasing. * * * We prefer it de
